Sarracenia, the North American pitcher plants, are native to the US Gulf Coast states and all along the East Coast, from Eastern Texas through to Florida, and north through the New England states and the Southern provinces of Canada. There is even one natural population in extreme east British Columbia! These plants get their name from their pitcher-shaped leaves. They capture insects by producing nectar along the rim of their pitchers. When an insect starts to lick up the nectar, it tries to get more by reaching in the pitcher. When it loses its footing, it falls right in! The inside walls of the pitcher are very smooth, so insects are not able to crawl out. They also can’t fly out because there isn’t any airlift in a tube! Eventually, the insect dies, and as it decomposes, the plant absorbs its nutrients right through its leaves   Deliverable
