a carnivorous plant found in freshwater bogs of the southeastern part of North America. It is a natural occuring hybrid between two american pitcher plants: sarracenia minor (hooded pitcher plant) and s. leucophylla (white trumpet). Pitchers are characterized by green pitchers being molted with red and white at the top. Average size is 65 cm. Pitcher plants are known for their gluttony of devouring flies, yellow jackets, and ants to the point where they topple over the weight of their victims. Unlike the venus fly trap, the pitcher plant does not shut close it's lid, but rather is a pitfall trap: insects become drunk with drugged nectar enter in a smooth waxy mouth with no hold, and fall into a digestive soup awaiting at the bottom.
