General Description
 
Of all the varieties of Sarracenia flava, the ornate yellow trumpet stands out from the crowd like a movie star. Unlike other forms of this species, the ornata form has thick red pinstripes against an orangey-yellow background.

Foliage is tall and broad in optimal conditions. A wide, orangey lid exposes a blood-red throat patch in the interior of a generous, yellow-rimmed mouth. Taking a look at this variety up close, you can see heavy amounts of honey-like nectar, oozing plentifully in anticipation of its most common prey - yellowjackets and flies.
