Carolina Yellow Jacket Pitcher Plant

Sarracenia x Carolina Yellow Jacket

Chartreuse pitchers have unique pointed hoods. A prolific grower and a great choice for water gardeners who have little experience with carnivorous plants.

Like other Pitcher Plants, carnivorous Yellow Jacket traps bugs in its pitchers, where it slowly digests them. This cultivar traces its roots to S. purpurea, flava and rosea.
