A plant from the Arum family, this perennial has a single compound leaf atop a stalk from 8 to 40 " tall. It is often missed in the damp woods. A single flower arises from a basal sheath. The green spathe is 1-2" long and surrounds the spadix flowers. Found throughout most of TN May thru June in damp low woods and along streams. Look for the bright red to orange berries in the Fall.
