More From the Shade Garden
This is the first year that they have flowered since I moved them about three years ago. I'm just glad to see that they are doing well and getting more established every year.
Jack-in-the-Pulpits are native to Wisconsin. At one time they were a protected species because so many people were going out into the woods to dig them up for their own garden. Trilliums were another species protected for this very reason. I know the trilliums have been removed from the list, but I'm not sure if the Jack-in-the-Pulpits have been. I hope I didn't do anything illegal by moving them. In my defense, they were not going to survive where they were and now they are doing just dandy.
