Jack-in-the-Pulpit, or Arisaema triphyllum as it is known botanically, is a unique plant with an exciting growth pattern.
The Jack-in-the-Pulpit flower is a tall stalk, or spadix, inside a hooded cup or spathe. This plant’s flowers are tiny, green, or yellow-tinged dots that line the spadix, surrounded by large, three-lobed leaves that hide the spathe from view. In late summer or fall, the Jack-in-the-Pulpit spathe falls off the plant, and its flowers become decorative wands of bright red berries. Jack-in-the-Pulpits is a lovely berry-bearing wildflower native to the United States and Canada.
Growing Jack-in-the-Pulpit is easy, given the right growing conditions. This plant prefers a shady spot with moist to wet, slightly acidic soil rich in organic matter. Since Jack-in-the-Pulpit plants tolerate poorly-drained soil, it is an excellent addition to rain or bog gardens. Jack-in-the-Pulpit plants that have been started in nursery containers are best planted in the spring. Dig a hole that is 6 inches deep. Work in a goodly amount of compost to the soil before planting and fertilize your Jack-in-the-Pulpit annually with additional compost. This plant enjoys organic mulch such as pine needles, bark, or cocoa bean shells that can be replaced each spring. Keep the soil moist, particularly during drought.
After Jack-in-the-Pulpit flowers are pollinated by insects that crawl into the spathe or hood of the plant, this part of the plant withers small clusters of green berries appear. Berries will grow and change color from green to orange in August and to a brilliant red in September, making the Jack-in-the-Pulpit berries ready for propagation. Jack-in-the-Pulpit plants are very attractive to slugs. You can remove slugs rapidly through hand picking or use slug baits, which are the easiest ways to deal with these pests. Knowing how to grow Jack-in-the-Pulpit is a terrific way to enjoy the plant’s bold, beautiful appearance throughout the season. Jack-in-the-Pulpit will bring a lovely enhancement to your shade gardens or naturalize the edges of woody landscapes. Choose Hostas or ferns to plant as companion plants.
