The name Jack-in-the-pulpit comes from the interesting structure of its flower. A small upright flower spike
looks like a tiny man inside an old fashioned pulpit. The top is partially hidden by a hooded leaflike petal.
"Jack-In-The-Pulpit was a watercolor
painting I complteted at the same time as Baby Fern. Both paintings were taken from the same group of reference photos I shot
in the Smoky Mountains. We have several of these rare
wildflowers growing in our yard."
