Looking for a unique and fascinating addition to your garden? Look no further than Sarracenia flava, the Yellow Pitcher Plant. This carnivorous plant, native to the New World, lures insects to its vibrant yellow rolled leaves with flower-like markings, secretions, and nectar. Once inside, the prey is unable to escape due to slippery surfaces and downward-pointing hairs. In spring, large flowers with long, strap-like petals dangle from a 50 cm scape. Easy to cultivate and popular with horticulturists, the Yellow Pitcher Plant is an ideal choice for gardens with full sun or partial shade.
