Sarracenia 'Night Sky' x leucophylla

 

Pitcher Plant 'Night Sky' x leucophylla

Sarracenia are rhizomous perennial plants with many tubular pitcher-shaped leaves radiating out from the base, and then turning upwards with their trap openings facing the center of the crown. They can trap insects and other prey without the use of moving parts. The plants prefer strong, direct sunlight with no shade and thrive in moist, acidic soil.

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Sarracenia like a long growing seasons and warm to hot summer temperatures. In areas with short and/or cool summers it is best to plant them in a greenhouse or potted, in a conservatory. In very hot areas with low humidity, some afternoon shade can be beneficial. If planting out, choose a site that is permanently moist, even in hot, dry periods and is in full sun. An acid soil is essential (low pH) as the plant draws its nutrients from the insects it traps.
