Jack-In-The-Pulpit


Hidden away on Eighty Acres I know of three Jack-In-the-Pulpit plants. They prefer to grow in moist, shady areas, and are often found under tall grasses and bushes near the edge of the woods. To assist in the spreading of the seeds, each August, the Earth Mother turns the shiny green fruit clusters bright red, thus welcoming the turkeys and pheasants to feed on them. If eaten by humans, dogs and cats the seeds can be deadly, causing severe burning sensations and swelling of the throat. So be mindful of the beauty of the plant, yet understand, all that comes forth from pulpits may not always be good for you.
