1. Yellow Pitcher Plants

    A small group of Sarracenia flava rubricorpora (Sarraceniaceae).

    The species produces pitchers only in the spring and phyllodia (pitcherless leaves) in late summer. The flowers are bright yellow, quite large, and tend to have a musky “feline” odor.

    The subspecies shown, Sarracenia flava rubricorpora, has a red tube, with the lid veined and either yellow or green. This plant is very beautiful, but unfortunately usually only produces a single large pitcher per rosette each year, so fields of this variety are somewhat sparsely pitchered. It is A rare plant, it is only found in the Florida panhandle.
