Jack-in-the-Pulpit Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in a loamy, peat, well-drained soil, in shade or dappled sunlight. These native plants do not spread quickly. Seeds will germinate in the spring to form a single, rounded leaf, and then take three years of growth before the plant is large enough to flower. Best left undisturbed when established. The juvenile seedling can sometimes be mistaken for poison ivy foliage.
