    I'd like to see your photos.

    I have both Green Dragon and Jack In The Pulpits. The Jacks are an assortment of colors from the all green to variations that are almost a deep burgundy down to a variation that is extremely light and almost a white. It's been quite cool this spring so they are slowly but surely beginning to emerge. Some of the Jacks are up out of the ground about 2-3" but the Green Dragons are only just poking out of the ground about a half an inch. If you can wait about 4 weeks, I should be able to get photos for you of 3 different color variations of Jacks as well as photos of my Green Dragons. Often times you find them growing in and amongst Trillium. I don't have skunk cabbage here.

    Sorry for the delay, wanted to wait a while for the pulpits to open fully.





    More pics on the way shortly!

    EDIT: Laura are you saying draconitums grow around trilliums or jacks?

    Lucky you, mine are just beginning to unfurl. Aren't jacks just the most wonderful plants. I love the way they sway when there is a brisk wind. They lean to and fro in unison.

    No, the draconitum are growing near a vernal creek bank. The area has extremely rich soil.

    I've got bloody butcher trilliums that are actually spread out all over the property. The Trillium grandiflorum (I don't know the common name for those) are here and there but not nearly as spread out as the other Trillium. The jacks are concentrated to three areas but are growing in close proximity to may apples. Incredibly, I have 5 distinct ecosystems on this property and we're not talking hundreds of acres either. I only have 5 acres. Come to think of it, I actually have 7 ecosystems if you count the life forms the pond can sustain as well as emergent vegetation surrounding the pond.

    It should be possible to find all 3 in the same area.
    Tho, You are more likely to see the draconitums with the jacks.

    And just to plug the auction. Get 6 Jack-in-the-pulpit plants for your self.

    Ummm, I've got Jacks coming out my wazoo but they are so beautiful that you will most assuredly get nice big fat bids for the NASC.

    Here's some things I've been looking to purchase-
    Squirrel Corn, (Dicentra canadensis)
    Poke Milkweed, (Asclepias exaltata)
    Don't know the common name, (Iliama remota)
    Black Snakeroot, (Sanicula gregaria, S. odorata, and S. trifoliata)
    Smooth Indigo Bush (Amorpha nitens)
    Wild Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius)
    Prairie White Fringed Orchid, (Platanthera praeclara)
    Prairie Turnip, (Psoralea esculenta)
    Nodding Ladies Tresses, (Spiranthes cernua)
    Need more White Lady Slipper, (Cypripedium candidum and C. kenutckiense)
    White Yarrow, (Achillea millefolium)
    Don't know the common name of this, (Polygonatum canaliculatum)

    A few grasses and sedges-
    Carex gracilima
    Carex bebbi
    Carex aquatilis
    Sisyrinchium campestre
    Hystrix patula
    Bromus kalmii

    I have a couple of Jacks...wish I had more. I got seed last year but don't know if they'll germinate.

    I also have trilliums. I HAD a beautiful pink trillium but the drought claimed it. My luteas are nice though...they have really multiplied this year.

    I love shade and woodland flowers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] My shade garden was pretty nice until the "exceptional" drought destroyed most of it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
