General Description
 
Sarracenia rosea definitely likes warm summers and long growing seasons. In spring when pitchers first emerge, they’re cream with a hint of red. By early fall, the plant transforms into a rosette of large, voluptuous crimson velvet pitchers. It's like a luxurious Vegas nightclub, but for insects.

In winter, this plant will go dormant and drop its leaves during significant frost. Look for pink flowers in mid to late spring.
