    Dustin,
    Do jacks frequently grow with skunk cabbage? If so, I'll have to take my camera out and go a-hunting. There's skunk cabbage ALL OVER THE BLOODLY PLACE around here.

    YOU! Outta my gene pool!

    This Jack In The Pulpit that I have is Arisaema Atrorubens Var. Zebrinum-


    This Jack In The Pulpit is Arisaema triphyllum-


    This is probably a subspecies of A. triphyllum but I'm not sure-


    They are now beginning to unfurl. The day time temps were in the upper 70's today and it was warm yesterday also so that was a big help.

    Skunk Cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus) likes it really wet but likes a lot of sun. Most Jacks like it moist, not wet, but like shade. I generally don't see the two growing communally so to speak as you do Jacks and Trillium. Green Dragon and skunk cabbage would be more likely but then again GD prefers shade. I've never seen Skunk Cabbage growing by anything other than sedges for the most part but that doesn't mean much as I've only run across it a handful of times.

    Trillium grandiflorum-




    Bloody Butcher Trillium-




    Viola sororia but might be V. missouriensis




    The remnant stand of May Apples, note the Solomon's Seal in the lower right hand corner-


    And look at this oddball viola I just found today-

    Anyone have any idea what this is? Gosh, there are thousands of violas out there. Shot in the dark. I only found about 5 plants. Doubtful it is introduced but you never know.

    Say nepenthes gracilis, I can't share the Green Dragon with you this year as I waited 5 years to get that local genotype. I had ordered 36 plants and was only able to get my hands on 6. I ordered them from Ender's-
    http://www.endersgreenhouse.com/
    Call and ask for Shannon and she will pre order for you if you are interested. I'm on her pre order list... again... for the Poke Milkweed, the Squirrel Corn, and the American Ginseng for next year. I think I pay about $5 for each plant from her. If you can wait until my GD establish, I would be more than happy to share with you and no trade is necessary. I think you are going to have to give it about 2 years though unfortunately. I am so sorry as I know what it is like to want a plant and you can't get your hands on it.

    The Trillium Grandiflorum was purchased 3 years ago. The Deer ate all but a few plants. I added another 300 Trillium Grandiflorum 2 years ago. I lost the vast majority of those. I tried one last time and am doing great this year. The heritage biologists are culling the deer in an attempt to get their numbers down closer to that which they were around the early 1900's. Quite frankly, their numbers were so high they couldn't sustain their own health. I think we are currently at 7x the deer we had in 1904. This is trouble for the environment. There's a great atrticle out there written by Eric Ness, "Oh Deer". You might want to track it down. Very well written.

    The Violas, Trillium grandiflorum, and the Jacks have established. I also have a new community of May Apples that have established. Would you like me to send you any of those to tide you over until my GD can establish? You are more than welcome to them. I'm really sorry about the GD. If I had been able to get all 36 that I ordered, I would have been in a position to share this year.

    I do have something else that might interest you that I ordered 24 of. Wulfennia bullii (Besseya bullii). That's one I've waited 4 years to get but I have it now and I have 10 plants. I generally plant in 3s. Would you like plant #10? The Besseya bullii in endangered and is extirpated here. The Green Dragon is actually quite common but being able to get one's hands on local genotype is an issue and that's a double dormancy seed which makes the plants expensive. Let me know if you are interested and pm me.
