Pitchers on Little Fledgling has a rich, eye-catching display of colors. The lower portion of the pitcher is red and green, which gradually develops into a wash of large white speckles. The lid is flared, heavily veined in fruity red against a stark white complexion. It's another one of those festive pitcher plants that's already decked out for Christmas!
