From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
I think I know this one, thanks to all the ptohos you provided. My guess is Jack-in-the-Pulpit arisaema triphyllum had to look up the Latin name Its always a delight to come upon such an exotic plant in the woods ..are they related to trillium
I would like to know where I can purchase either of these trees. Also, do these trees have deep roots Do I need to plant far away from underground utilities Can they be planted as a street tree
Great plant, No problems. What area are you looking
