Also known as Jack-in-the-pulpit."  It's a beauty.  If the spathe extends out 
from the hood, it's Green dragon (Arisaema dracontium).  That will come out 
in two weeks around you, but the other is out now.  Go forth and discover 
Iowa  :-)  At least it's an easy flora to learn - not that many species are 
still left in Iowa.
