Here is some information (including photos) of the purple pitcher plant or Sarracenia purpurea. You may need to cut and paste the complete url into your browser to make it work correctly.


If you wish to grow this carnivorous plant you will have to provide it with bog conditions similar to the acidic spagnum bog areas to which it is native. This is quite difficult to do under normal home conditions. I hope this answers your question.
