Jack-in-the-pulpit

Arisaema triphyllum 

Instead of the normal petal arrangement, the flowers of this family have an unusual form.  The “jack” (spadix) is a 2-to-3-inch erect club which sits inside a green or purplish hood, the “pulpit” (spathe).  The base of the green club is lined with tiny male or female flowers that are protected by the hood.  Only female flowering plants produce fruit, a cluster of shiny green berries that turn red in fall.
