One of my Jack in the Pulpit flowers is in full bloom. I moved this little plant last year. I found it getting quite a bit of sun - which it didn't like - and put it under this pine tree. I didn't have much hope that it would regrow because I put it under a pine tree where nothing seems to want to grow.
But it did appear. It looked grim for awhile, but overnight, there it was. And now it is the tallest one I have.
Jack in the Pulpit are wild flowers. Once I saw that these were going to like being under the pine tree (they like to grow among poison ivy in the shade, so big surprise) I went on a scavenger hunt for more. I planted a total of 5 last year under that tree and all 5 reappeared and are not far behind this one in size.
All in all - I think I found about 60 of them. And I saved them all. I moved them under the 9 pine trees we have, around rocks in the shade, and was happy to have something that loved the shade and would grow in my bare garden spots. Yippee.
I took a picture of the biggest one since it is in full bloom. I am just amazed that these are wild flowers. And what Mat likes about them is that I get to plant obsessively for free. It is a win win.
