Arisaema triphyllum ssp. quinatum, also known as Five-Leaved Jack, has stalks topped with five leaflets that rise from a tuberous root in early spring. This is followed by a distinctive hooded flower on its own stalk.  The striking, hooded, green flower with dark purplish and white stripes is followed by a cluster of fleshy red berries in late summer to early fall.  Naturally occurring in moist, low-lying wooded areas, especially those that seasonally flood, this plant requires consistent moisture and rich soils.
