Jack-in-the-pulpit berry-like fruitlets turn from green to a bright red by August. Each fruitlet usually contains two 5mm seeds. Most are eaten by birds and small mammals.
Spotted at the Tamarac Visitor Center. This plant grows best in partial sun to full shade in moist woods. Jack-in-the-pulpit is found throughout Minnesota except in the southern part.
Parts of the fresh green plant are toxic.
