This carnivorous plant is prevalent to the open bogs of the southeastern US coastal plains. The pitchers emerge in the spring, green at first and slowly mature to yellow reaching 20-30" tall. A prominent red blotch develops in the throat of this modified leaf, lathered with sweet nectar, alluring the unwary insect. Narrow, iris-like foliage appears later in season. Dramatic yellow flowers emerge on older plants in spring on single stems largely pollinated by bees. Plant in a peat-based soil with consistent moisture in full sun.
