Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed'

Pitcher Plant

  • New in 2014
Seemingly innocent, the leaves of the pitcher plant have evolved into water-filled funnels that hide a sinister purpose. These intriguing carnivorous plants devour insects to improve their diet and counter poor nitrogen levels in the soils of their natural habitats. Lured by the promise of sweet nectar-like secretions on the lip of each pitcher, their victims are met by a slippery footing and tumble to a watery death deep within each funnel. Endlessly fascinating, Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed' make a captivating talking point for the greenhouse, conservatory or a windowsill indoors. Plants will be mature enough to catch insects after 2 - 3 years. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (8").
