This rare, Federally endangered, southeast endemic pitcher plant, which is native to 2-3 counties in Alabama, was named by trillium guru, the late Fred Case of Michigan, who discovered the plant on his honeymoon in the 1940s! Sarracenia alabamensis (related to Sarracenia rubra) produces a nice, spring and fall crop of showy golden pitchers. Topping the clump in early May before the pitchers emerge are stunning red fragrant flowers on a very floriferous clump. Our original plants were purchased in 1999 under permit from sarracenia specialist Craig Moretz and these are divisions of those plants. Because of their endangered status, this is only available for nursery pickup or shipping to NC customers only.
