Pitcher Plant, Au Naturel













All pitcher plants are Sarracenia flava, mostly the typical form which is allover yellow-green.  A few are either veined forms or coppertops.  Photographs taken in Brunswick County, North Carolina, on June 21, 2012.

  1. Great photographs! I just love stumbling on these lovely plants but I've never seen so many in one place. I usually find only a few at a time.

    1. Thank you, Carolyn. Wait, what? You stumble upon these plants? You will have to tell me where to trip along!

  2. I want to try planting some of these or the double bloomed ones we saw in Asheville. Just need to figure out what it needs. I would have thought lots of water, but the ones you just showed aren't in standing water.

    1. Isn't that amazing, Janet? Why do we call them bog plants anyway? Coastal Carolina pitchers grow in pine savannas! Everything you read will tell you the roots shouldn't dry out, though, so the roots need to have at least a good bit of humidity all the time, it seems. In a pot with water in the dish kind of thing.
