April Showers bring....

May flowers....well today is the second day of rain we've had in the month of April?? The flowers are blooming, but slowly! This was seen at Stateline Woods Preserve. 

Arisaema triphyllum  or Jack in the Pulpit is a fairly common woodland flower (though some may not think it is actually a flower).  This plant is a useful, and low maintenance woodland plant that is a great addition to a shaded or woodland garden.  It prefers moist soils, but I rescued some from a mower a few years back and planted it in my very dry woodland. It is doing fairly well, though maybe not spreading as much as it would in a different setting.  I'll be posting more plants as we find them on our travels!!
