Sarracenia leucophylla (pitcher plants & fly trap plants) Pictures 1!

The florist industry uses tens of thousands of pitcher leaves annually and the demand is growing. These

 are mostly from the highly decorative leaves of Sarracenia leucophylla. The pitcher plants and

 their hybrids are also becoming popular horticultural plants. In England there are gardens

dedicated  solely to North American pitcher plants! A park in Japan has been

designed to features only insectivorous plants, in which our North American

pitcher plants are a major attraction. Clearly people are captivated

by pitcher plants. Sarracenia leucophylla flowers are large

 and produce a sweet smell. Contrary to common belief,

 the lid does  not snap down to close off the pitcher

 after the insect is caught.
