Rare and Exceptional Plants for the
Discriminating Gardener and Collector
Home : Specials of the Week
You remember "Jack" from those walks in the woods with your grandfather, those really intriguing, curious flowers
that nobody seemed to understand. Arisaema triphyllum, aka "Jack in the Pulpit" is one of the most mystical native
plants that I've ever grown. There's nothing like a colony of these guys in the shade garden to stimulate conversation,
considering their large Philodendron like leaves (They're in the same family - Araceae), the magical flowers and the
dark red seed heads
that form in early to mid-Autumn. Not many other plants give you so many seasons of interest. I've seen them grow
as tall as 48" at maturity and they just keep getting bigger and more robust every year.
Arisaema triphyllum is quite easy to grow and prefers rich, moisture retentive soil in light to full shade. Self seeding occurs, and before you know it, you have a little forest of them. They're hardy for sure to Zone 5, probably 4, maybe even 3.
The bulbs I'm offering you here are small (8-12 mm in diameter). They're 3 years old and should flower next year. If your ground is still frozen, no problem, they're just breaking dormancy and you can probably get a dozen or more into a 6" pot. Place them on a windowsill and let them sprout out, keeping them moist, but not wet. As soon as it warms up a bit, set them out.
The prices shown below include FREE SHIPPING on bareroot plants out of their 2" pots. If you would like to receive the plants undisturbed, in their pots, please add .95¢ per plant to cover the extra cost of shipping soil and pots.
12 are $25.00 delivered ($2.09 ea)
