Several of these strange plants appeared in our woodlands this spring in east Tennessee. They are on sturdy stalks. No flowers noticed yet.
What are they? Weeds or wildflowers?
Well the winner is Arisaema draconitum - green dragon. The University of Tennessee Gardens confirmed it. I'm not terribly fond of this plant. It's not pretty to me at all. I have about a dozen of them growing in my woodland garden for the first time this spring. Very unusual looking.
Sure looks like a day Lilly to me.
I don't think its a pineillia. It has leaves similar to mayapple but they are different. I have a patch of mayapples and not one has this spike thing. Very unique. They are only in one area of our woods. Its an area that is normally dry shad in the summer. We have had a lot of rain this spring though so it has been wet.
Maybe. I have a lot of mayapples but none have ever had this spike with the pitcher plant looking thing
