Cultivar Notes - 'Dana's Delight'
Sarracenia Dana's Delight are arguably the most beautiful of the hybrid Sarracenia. Dana's Delight is a stunning pitcher plant, producing slender pitchers over two feet tall with heavily ruffled red and white hoods. The red is so bright that it almost looks flourescent! As with all of the American Pitcher Plants, this hybrid is very easy to care for.
Genus Notes - Sarracenia
Pitcher plants are described as carnivorous plants because they trap and kill insects (e.g., flies, ants, beetles, wasps) and similar prey (e.g., mites, spiders) by luring them into trumpet-shaped pitchers (modified leaves) where the insects become trapped and die. Nutrients from the decayed pest bodies are absorbed by the plant as nourishment through special cells located at the base of each pitcher.
