We grow all cold hardy plants outdoors at our nursery in Oregon!

Sarracenia, or North American pitcher plants, are native to the United States coastal regions of the Gulf Coast and throughout the East Coast, from northern Florida through the New England states and the eastern provinces of Canada. These plants get their name from their pitcher-shaped leaves. They capture insects by producing nectar along the rim of their pitchers. When an insect starts to lick up the nectar, it tries to get more by reaching in the pitcher. When it loses its footing, it falls in!

In mid-spring, Sarracenia slowly emerges from winter dormancy and are often in full growth by late spring, depending on the variety and your climate. In mid-summer, they bask in full sun. In early fall, they cease all new growth and shed many of their pitchers in time for winter dormancy. During winter dormancy, they can experience snowy conditions, down to 20°F with almost no protection. New growth occurs when the weather warms up again in spring.
