Hooded Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia minor) Chesser Island Okeefenokee Swamp NWR Charlton County GA April 2011 Jeff Skrentny IMG_2954
The purple pitcher plant (Sarracenia purpurea) is found in moist areas such as bogs. It has distinct purplish colouration which looks like it is running through veins in spots. It has a large hood over the pitcher opening where small invertebrates are unknowingly drawn to their doom when they fall in and can't escape the steep sides lied with hairs pointing back at them, and are dissolved by enzymes in the water.
