Sarracenia flava var. rubricorpora


This is one of my favorite varieties of North American pitcher plant! Not only for it’s appearance but for it’s amazing ability to catch high volumes of insects. This variety also features in my favorite video (see below) displaying how insects behave when fighting over precious nectar.


  • A naturally occurring variety found in the Florida Panhandle.
  • The pitchers form a stunning red color.
  • The lid of the pitcher turns yellow with contrasting red veins.
  • The nectar roll also turns yellow contrasting against the deep red tubes.
  • Later in the season the pitchers turns a more vibrant red as insects become more prevalent in their diet.
