Arisaema triphyllum
Jack-in-the-Pulpit

The flower of Jack-in-the-Pulpit is composed of a hooded spathe (the "pulpit") that envelopes the reproductive structures (the spadix, or "jack"). The outside of the spathe may be green or chartreuse (rarely purple), while the inside may be solid-colored (as on the exterior), or composed of alterating purple and green stripes. The cylindrical spadix has pollen at the top, and ovules at the bottom.
