Cultivar Notes - 'Pitcher Plant'
Sarracenia catesbaei is a hybrid of Sarracenia flava and Sarracenia purpurea. The pitchers of Sarracenia catesbaei have wide, flared lids, and maintain their pitchers for longer than most other Sarracenia.
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.
