Pitcher plants, Sarracenia species hybrids, have tubular, hooded leaves that attract and trap insects. The often scented flowers appear in spring and are bizarre and intriguing in their own right. Grow in moist, boggy soil in full sun. Hardy to -10 degrees F. Native to the Eastern U.S.
We grow these tough and bizarre looking plants in large containers in the nursery and they never fail to attract attention from nursery visitors. Young children are particularly enthralled by their carnivorous behavior.
