Sarracenia psittacina


Florida native

Threatened Florida species

A frequent pitcherplant of bogs, wet prairies and seepage slopes in northeast Florida and most of the panhandle. The range extends into the southeastern states from South Carolina into Louisiana.
The leaves, or pitchers, of parrot pitcherplant are usually laying on the ground (decumbent), gradually tapering towards the base, and have a hood that is curved, slightly inflated and conceals the opening. Flowers are on erect stalks and nodding, with 5 sepals and petals that are usually red, and an umbrella-like style typical of Sarracenia.
