This week in the garden May 24-Jack

Thanks to Candy at The Little Round Table for hosting This Week in the Garden.  We've had lots of rain this past week, which makes taking photos a bit of a challenge. So, I thought I might share one of my all-time favorite plants: Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum).  It's an easy perennial, and can provide a pretty dramatic display in late spring/early summer.  I love all the shades of green, from the lightest chartreuse to a medium true green...  I'd like to add another variety or two...maybe one of the purple or dark brown cultivars. 


  1. Your photo came out nice! I love Jacks, too, and have a few in my yard.

  2. Beautiful Elaine and always such a conversation piece. Perfect shades of chartreusey green to brighten up the garden.

    Thanks for joining the party,
