Sarracenia purpurea is one of our favorite species of Sarracenia, and one of the shortest varieties too. They often grow in the partial shade of other plants, making it an excellent choice for an indoor terrarium. When grown in bright light, however, the entire pitcher initially is covered with deep red veins on a glowing green background, but eventually many of these can turn almost solid deep red! This particular variety of Purple Pitcher Plant is best suited to more northerly climates. Unless otherwise specified, all our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress.
