Description Fine Print
 
Arisaema dracontium is the rare second species of jack-in-the-pulpit native to eastern North America. Its better known relative is A. triphyllum. However, these two species are not closely related, each having closer kin in Asia. A. dracontium is a member of section Tortuosum and resembles A. tortuosum with a tall green stem to three feet holding 7-13 leaflets. The inflorescence is usually held below the leaf. The spathe is green and gives rise to a dramatic, curling, green to yellow to orange, tongue-like spadix appendage. Mid-season.Orange-red fruit follows in summer and fall. Needs rich well-drained soil in shade. Occurs in southern Ontario south into the US.
