Jumping Jacks

The earliest of the Jack-in-the-pulpit species have begun to flower, starting with the consistently early Arisaema ringens. All of the arisaema shown below are woodland plants that thrive in rich, but well-drained, average to slightly moist (mesic) soils. Explore our full arisaema collection.

Next in line this spring was the alluring Japanese, Arisaema mayebarae.

A close cousin is Arisaema serratum. We are thrilled to grow this lovely silver centered form with dark flowers.

The last arisaema to flower this week is the earliest of the whipcord jacks, Arisaema thunbergii ssp. urashima, with its lovely flowers nestled among the foliage.
