Casualty of Weeding

Asked August 24, 2019, 4:57 PM EDT

I was removing stilt grass and mile-a-minute with a heavy rake. Amongst my haul were 3 of this plant. The stilt grass was so tall that I didn’t see this until it was too late. Will this come back if I replant them? Thanks for this service.

The is our native jack in the pulpit, a curious and beautiful native (also deer resistant.)

Yes, by all means replant the "bulbs." Water well. Let the berries remain on the top of the soil nearby, and hopefully you will get more "jacks."
