Common name jack in the pulpit
Family araceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers dark purple/white
Size 30"
Light part-full shade

detailed seed-starting info below

Typical pitcher-shaped jack-in-the-pulpit flowers, but with striking chocolate-purple coloring of the inside. Orange berries. Ours is just a second-year plant, so we haven't seen all this marvellous display yet... Even so, I like how the new growth emerges as a burgundy spear. One day after this photo was taken, the leaves were fully unfurled.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
