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.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: front fence nursery area
