A wild Jack....the seeds don't spread very far...

A wild Jack....the seeds don't spread very far... (Arisaema triphyllum (Jack-in-the-pulpit))

so the plants live, generation over generation, in close proximity.

I'll be happy if mine choose to go walkies - the more the better!

that's not to say that birds or wildlife couldn't take a seed to another spot in your garden, Amy. Have observed groupings that look like the seed just fell to the earth and started up over top of the old plant...will be interesting to see how they establish themselves in your garden.
They seem to thrive through our cold winters and a complete lack of care, here in the wild, Meanie. I'm sure they'll be happy with your climate. As with most wildflowers they will thrive or not, despite our best if you can ignore them, so much the better. lol...then take pictures and brag when they bloom. (ahem, I may be giving away a secret here!) ;-)

My new garden has an ideal spot somewhere for most plants Lori. Finally invested in a Tricyrtis ishiana as I finally had a good spot for it.

I commend you, Meanie! They are picky and hard to keep so if you have the patience you deserve a big gold star! Starting up my new garden has given me a crash course on the importance of "place". this is only my second season so hopes are high. There is so much to learn.

That's the main reason that I've held back from getting one until now Lori. Just got to get it to bloom now!

It's a big learning curve isn't it? Even the house plants are behaving differently..............
