Jack-in-the-Pulpit-an unusual Spring Ephemeral that slowly spreads and makes a colony.

It grows in part to deep shade. Attracts pollinators, reptiles and songbirds. Seeds are eaten by Eastern Box Turtles. Flowering plants initially produce only male flowers, but become hermaphroditic as they further age (male flowers on the upper part of spadix and female on the lower part). Most plants in a colony will vanish by mid-summer (become dormant), but the mature, hermaphroditic flowering plant will produce a cluster of red berries in mid to late summer which becomes visible as the spathe withers.  Pollinators crawl beneath the spathe, down the spadix while collecting pollen.

Deer Resistant!
