(Jack in the Pulpit - 03) Note the difference in coloration of this jack-in-the-pulpit from the previous photographed variety. The literature tells us that there are three major varieties which differ mainly in the color striping of the spathe or hood, which can be green, purple or white. What we have not found is any mention of the different color of "Jack". The Woodland jack-in-the-pulpit has purple-brown stripes, and its albino form has green stripes. The Northern jack-in-the-pulpit has white ridges outside and purple-brown stripes inside. The Swamp jack-in-the-pulpit is nearly black.
