Here is one of the true conversation pieces of the aroid world. The thick, 4' tall, fleshy petiole (stalk) emerges in early June, adorned by two tropical-looking, palmate green leaves near the top. As the leaves unfurl, the pitcher that tops the stem opens to reveal a green Jack-in-the-pulpit flower, but with a whip-like tongue that extends from the mouth of the flower upwards to 12" or more...it don't get much weirder than this...a flower arranger's dream, and an anal-retentive gardener's nightmare!
