Wildflower Arisaema Triphyllum Garden Plants
Arisaema triphyllum garden plants are ideal for those who like to grow unique wildflowers in the garden. Arisaema triphyllum garden plants are also known as Jack-in-the-pulpit plants. Jack-in-the-pulpit―the plant with a unique name has an equally unique flower. It has a long, finger-shaped spadix located inside a cylindrical spathe that has a hooded tip. If you go by the name, jack represents the spadix, and the pouch-like spathe denotes the pulpit. Jack-in-the-pulpit garden plants grow from turnip-shaped corms. This plant has one or two leaves with three leaflets each. The leaves develop on stalks that are often found to be longer than the flower stalk. The veined leaflets are elliptical with a length of three to six inches.
The leaves as well as the flower develop during spring. The flower of these garden plants has a peculiar structure. It has a long spadix covered by a leaf-like spathe. The flower can be whitish-green, green, or purple, and the spathe can be plain, mottled, or striped. The tip of the spathe bends over the spadix, like a hood, partially covering the open top. The spadix can be eight to ten centimeters long, and the flowers are located on its lower end. Blood-red berries are formed on the thickened, club-shaped spadix. Each berry contains one to five tan-colored seeds.
