Jack or Jill
Pinellia tripartita is an unusual Jack in the pulpit cousin, with a long, green spadix, and leaves just like an arisaema. It stays in bloom a long time, and is just an all-around fascinating little plant.
That is a very neat plant! I had never seen a jack-in-the-pulpit before this spring. My neighbor has a woodland wildflower garden in his back yard and introduced me to "jack." He was kind enough to give me a few for my own yard. I treasure them.Post a Comment
