The Purple Pitcher plant has the largest range of all North American Pitcher Plants – most of Canada and throughout the eastern United States.  It is a gorgeous and hardy plant that captures insects by first luring them to its rim with downward pointing hairs.  Once the insect is entranced with the liquid surrounding the rim of the pitcher, it loses its footing and slips into a pool of water where it will drown and be digested by the plant.


Plants are shipped bareroot and ready for a 4-5 inch pot.  Between the months of October – March, North American Pitcher Plants are dormant and their growth has slowed or stopped.  It is recommended that you keep your plant in a cool location during this period and gradually introduce it to direct sunlight in the spring.
