Sarracenia flava var. rubricorpora

(2 customer reviews)


This is one of my favourite varieties of North American pitcher plant! The yellow-coloured hood and peristome contrasting with the dark red tube and veins is hard to beat. Like all Sarracenia its able attract and catch all sorts of insects into its pitcher. This is a naturally occurring variety which is quite rare in its natural habitat. This plant also features in my video (see below) displaying how insects behave when fighting over precious nectar.


  • This plant can be purchased as a pot plant. See the ‘Pick-Up Purchase’ tab below for details.
  • A naturally occurring variety found in the Florida Panhandle.
  • The pitchers form a stunning red colour.
  • The lid of the pitcher turns yellow with contrasting red veins and pitcher.
  • In late summer the pitchers turns a more vibrant red colour as insects become more prevalent in their diet.
