A Sarracenia with orange flowers! Rare amongst North American pitcher plants, and even rarer in cultivation, the fiery-orange flowers of Siskiyou Autumn appear in early to mid spring, dropping their petals by June.
Pitchers are neon yellow and very tall, borne in dense clusters on narrow rhizomes that frequently divide. Traps are capped with oversized, undulating lids held at an upright angle. The yellow complexion of the leaves eventually turns ruddy orange by late summer and fall, remaining on the plant through first frost.
