Pitcher plants in flower

Sarracenia leucophylla Sumter in flowerHere’s an image we just took in the gardens of Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Sumter’.  In our opinion, it doesn’t get much better than this. All hardy pitcher plants have these amazing other worldly flowers, and most are winter hardy in Zones 5 and 6.  All our sarracenias are planted in straight peat moss, about 8″ deep inside a pond liner that has holes cut along the edges so the water doesn’t stay too high.  No fertilizer ever and you certainly don’t have to worry about insects.

  1. I love these extravagant and yes, other-worldly flowers! Once went to a fen with a couple of people when there were wild ones flowering, an unforgettable experience. These are beautiful in a different way, so glad you’re getting them out there for people to appreciate.
