Sarracenia: American Pitcher

Sarracenia, or the American pitcher, is a cold-hardy perennial native to the eastern regions of the United States, from northern Florida through the New England states and the eastern provinces of Canada where temperatures often drop well below freezing. Grow Sarracenia as container plants in a very sunny location. They love sun! In fall, plants will stop growing and go dormant. Many will drop their pitchers at this time. In winter, while dormant, Sarracenia can withstand brief frosts of 20°F with minimal protection. Look for new growth in spring.

We grow all Garden Plants outdoors at our nusery in Oregon. Their appearance will change with the season.
