Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) has been blooming for about a week in the Pittsburgh area.
The flower usually looks like this (click here) with three-part leaves and a long curving hood.
Dianne lifted Jack’s roof to show his beautifully decorated pulpit.
Some flowers don’t have such bold stripes inside. You’ll have to lift Jack’s lid to see.
