Native to the Florida Panhandle and through North Carolina. It has ground-hugging rain-catchers, sporting conspicuous purple-red leaves with wide, heavily patterned hoods. It grows slower than other types of Sarracenia but will form an impressive clump over time. Plant remains relatively short when fully mature, 6-8 inches. Tends to be deciduous during winter.

    The plant arrived in great condition and very well packaged. It has been planted in its permanent position for about a month and is thriving, with new pitchers beginning to appear.
