Jersey Girl Pitcher Plant

Sarracenia purpurea ‘Jersey Girl’

Dark red pitchers have pretty bright green veining. Red flowers loom overhead in spring and summer.

Jersey Girl traces its roots, as the name suggests to New Jersey, making it one of the more winter-hardy pitcher plants. Like other Sarracenia plants, the carnivorous Jersey Girl uses her pitcher’s to trap unsuspecting insects.
