Parrot Pitcher Plant
Sarracenia psittacina

One of the most unusual shaped Sarracenia varieties, the Parrot Pitcher Plant has a bulbous head that has a vague similarity to a parrot's beak. The leaves are beautifully marked with red veins and white spots and its flowers are a deep red, which open later in the season than other Sarracenia varieties. Growing to a height of only six inches, it is one of the smallest Sarracenia species and ideally suited for growing in a terrarium or on your windowsill. Like all Sarracenia, it is a carnivorous species that traps insects as a source of additional nutrients. To do this, the plant uses its upright folded leaves or "pitchers" which are half full of water, with sticky juice near the top. The juice attracts insects, which crawl into the "pitcher" and become trapped and are then "consumed" by the plant. A rare variety, it is hardy from zones 7-9 and will make a unique addition to your garden or home. Unusual and fun to grow, this beautiful specimen is actually not that hard from seed if proper cultural practices are followed.
