This unusual Asian aroid with tripartite (3-parted) leaves resembles a Jack-in-the-pulpit. Beginning in late spring and continuing all summer, the clumps are topped with arisaema-like (spathe and spadix) flowers of medium green. The 10" long tongue, emerging from the center of the flower, stands at attention...bizarre and very easy to grow in the woodland garden. P. tripartita seeds around a bit, although nothing on the order of P. ternata or P. pedatisecta.
