ABSTRACT
The article presents gardening guidelines for the pitcher plant, Sarracenia, in the U.S. Most of the eight species native to North America are hardy in zones 7, 8 and 9. With winter protection, some species will survive in zones 5 and 6. Gardeners should plant in early spring in wet peat or sphagnum moss. The pitcher plant can also be grown indoors by feeding it with fertilizer, diluted to 10 percent of the recommended strength.
