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!
We grow all Sarracenia outdoors at our nursery in Oregon. They slowly emerge from winter dormancy in April and May and will be in full growth by early June. By late September, they will cease all new growth and shed many of their pitchers in time for winter dormancy.
All cold hardy plants are dormant for the season.
New growth will emerge in spring.
