Threatened Florida species
Florida's most widespread pitcherplant, Sarracenia minor is frequently found in flatwoods and bogs in much of the peninsula south into Highlands & Ockeechobee Counties and west into the central panhandle. The range extends into Georgia and the Carolinas.
The leaves of pitcherplants are specialized structures which are designed to capture insects for these carnivorous plants to digest. The pitchers of this species are erect, hooded and have white or translucent patches on the upper portion and the hood margin is entire(smooth). The flowers are yellow and nodding with 5 petals and sepals, umbrella-like styles and numerous stamens.
