I have absolutely no idea what this plant is, it looks as if it's some sort of giant pitcher plant, is that right?
Dave Bonta: No, it's not related to pitcher plants; the shape has nothing to do with catching insects. The Wikipedia article is a decent enough intro: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack-in-the-Pulpit
