Identity of this plant ?

Postby mousiehousie » Mon Jan 05, 2015 2:27 pm

Can anyone identify this plant from this image. My DIL says it is lily like but that could be debatable ! Says it appears after the flower. There only seems to be part of one dying leaf showing. She is in Goulburn NSW so hot Summers , cold Winters

Hi there Mousie. :)

It's pretty much guesswork with foliage to go by, but try Arisaema triphyllum ... goes by the common name of Jack in the Pulpit.

How embarrassed am I ! I have this plant growing in my garden and know it as Jack in the Pulpit. It is growing under a clump of Nandina and I had forgotten about it . Have had it over the years and I have never noticed the seed heads on it [ they are there now when I looked ! ] as it has always been poked away somewhere ,so didn't recognize just the seeds . Sorry people !! :D
