Bug Bat Pitcher Plant

Sarracenia ‘Bug Bat’

Bug Bat forms tight clumps of pitchers that start as green at their bases and darken to burgundy at the tips. Like other pitcher plants, Bug Bat produces a sweet-smelling nectar that attracts insects. The insects then fall into the pitchers, where the plant can digest them.
