Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia purpurea is an incredible plant though rarely seen in gardens. It can be grown from the mid Atlantic to the coldest parts of the New England and mid west. While native to boggy areas it is very easy to recreate conditions it likes. The highly attractive funnel shaped leaves entice insects to crawl in, where they get trapped and then provide nutrients for the plant. Each funnel is 3 to 7 inches high WITH HIGHLY INTRICATE VEINING AND MARKINGS. Mature plants can have up to a dozen funnels. A great plant to excite interest in the garden and be the envy of plant friends. Please note: this is the ONLY truly hardy Pitcher Plant for cold areas, though you might see other species offered elsewhere, the one we offer is reliable and easy to grow.
