The East coast native S. rubra isn't as flashy as others, but it's still a great plant. The small upright green pitchers (1/2" wide x 12" tall) are topped with a light red hood and are produced en masse throughout the entire growing season. The clumps are topped with spectacular flying-saucer-shaped red flowers in spring on 1' stems.
