An early jack-in-the-pulpit
I didn't realize until today this Asian jack-in-the-pulpit was such an early riser. Arisaema sikkokianum is one of the most treasured of the cobra-lilies because of its white clapper inspired by 20th century western toilet bowls. I got this one as a seedling from Jacques Thompson of Ypsilanti. If I'm not mistaken, this is its third year in the garden, its first year to flower. This is supposed to attract WHAT kind of insect?
