Cultivar Notes - 'Tarnok'
Big, unusual, red blooms appear in the spring preceeding the emergence of upright, flaring tubular leaves with green bases and pure-white lips and lids webbed in reddish tracery. Perhaps the handsomest of pitcher plants.
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.
