This amazing insect-eating perennial is native to the deep southeastern portion of the U.S. Lovely flowers are various shades of red. Amazing trumpet-like frilled foliage, (the pitchers), are white-topped and delicately marbled with red and/or green veins. First-year plants usually make 1–3 pitchers in the spring, some flat leaves in midsummer, and 1-3 of the most colorful pitchers in late Aug.–Oct. The plants require an acidic, low mineral soil and moist to wet conditions, This can easily be accomplished by container planting in a mix of peat moss and sand or perlite. Full sun for five hours or more is required; indoor growing is not advised, due to light and dormancy needs.
