Sarracenia: American Pitcher
Sarracenia, or the American pitcher, is a cold-hardy perennial native to North America. They occur naturally in the eastern regions of the United States, from northern Florida through the New England states. Their range also extends into Canada, from the eastern provinces to the Great Lakes where winters can be as low as -30°F!
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 frosts of 20°F with minimal protection. Look for new growth in spring.
