Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia) - 3 Varieties (SAVE 33%)

One of the most diverse and unique plants are members of the Sarracenia or Pitcher Plant species. These carnivorous species trap 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. This listing is for three (3) rare varieties: Purple, Yellow and White Top.

Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia) 3 Varieties (SAVE 33%)

One of the most diverse and unique plants are members of the Sarracenia or Pitcher Plant species. These carnivorous species trap 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. The natural habitants of these unique plants are on sphagnum bogs and peaty barrens. They are native to eastern USA and Canada, and have now become naturalized in many parts of the world. This listing is for three (3) rare and colorful varieties:

  • Purple Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea)
  • Yellow Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia flava rugelii)
  • White Top Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia leucophylla)

These varieties are quite hardy and will make a unique addition to your garden. You can even grow these plants in a cool windowsill or on your patio to trap insects. Unusual and fun to grow, these beautiful specimens are actually not that hard from seed if proper cultural practices are followed.

Purple Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea)

The pitchers are slender at the basal rosette, rapidly becoming swollen higher up. They are green with purple tints and the plant itself only grows to about six inches in height. Beautiful maroon or reddish-purple flowers appear in spring and are about 2-3" wide and stand about 10-15" above the plant. Hardy in zones 5-9.
Yellow Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia flava rugelii)

Sometimes referred to as Yellow Trumpets, the Yellow Pitcher Plant is a grand, erect and showy pitcher plant. This particular variety (Sarracenia flava rugelii) is one of the most beautiful with pure green to yellow upper pitchers with a deep crimson patch in the throat. Thisvariety is much more robust than any of the other Sarracenia species and grows to 2-3' tall. Large nodding 4" yellow flowers appear in early spring, somewhat resembling an upside down umbrella. Hardy in zones 5-9.
White Top Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia leucophylla)

The White Top Pitcher Plant is one of the most spectacular plants found in the Sarracenia group. The tops of the leaf are netted in green or white with red veins and are sometimes almost totally white. Large 3" red nodding flowers, standing from 1-2 feet above the plants, are produced from mid-spring to early summer. Hardy in zones 6-9.
