If you're looking for the Purple Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia purpurea, look no further...here it is! Sarracenia purpurea is our favorite species of Sarracenia, and we especially like this more southerly-growing subspecies (ssp. venosa), as it tends to be more forgiving than the northern subspecies (ssp. purpurea) in its growing conditions. Its short, tubby pitchers are such a contrast compared to the more upright-growing species! They often grow in the partial shade of other plants (grasses, sedges, small shrubs, etc.), 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...awesome! Unless otherwise specified, all Sarracenia are shipped potted to reduce stress. Water and enjoy!
