This past May I shared with you how excited I was to find Jack-in-the-pulpits growing on our new land. I thought you’d like to see what one Jack looks like when it goes to seed:According to William Cullina in Wildflowers: A Guide to Growing and Propagating Native Flowers, every Jack-in-the-pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) has both male and female parts, but if the plant is young or weak, only the male parts will be fertile. The female parts are fertile only on older, stronger plants. So this must have been a pretty happy Jack.
Posted for Wildflower Wednesday, created by Gail of Clay and Limestone, to share wildflowers/native plants no matter where you garden in the blogosphere. “It doesn’t matter if we sometimes show the same plants. How they grow and thrive in your garden is what matters most. It’s always the fourth Wednesday of the month!”
