Our stock has finally reached the point that we can offer another of our SE US native Jack-in-the-pulpits, A. dracontium. Green dragons most closely resemble A. heterophyllum except that the flower is held just above the leaf. From an underground tuber in mid-May emerges an 18" dusty-green stalk, topped with a horseshoe-like arrangement of 7-15 leaflets. Emerging alongside the leaf stalk is a narrow green cone to 2-3". Emerging from the cone (spathe) is a rigidly upright, threadlike, yellow tongue...probably from some social disease. Green dragons go dormant in midsummer, so don't panic.
