(Jack in the Pulpit - 02) Jack can be seen standing in the pulpit, if we crouch down or we gently lift the hood-like spathe. One of the distinctive features of the jack-in-the-pulpit are the stripes on the "bowl" of the pulpit and those on the underside of its "canopy" or hood. The literature says that jack-in-the-pulpit can grow to one to three feet high, but we have never seen them over one foot. Our experience has been that when flowering, they are usually only about six inches high.
