(Pitcher Plant) Sarracenia 'Doodle Bug' is an exotic perennial that will be a great conversation piece in your garden. This bug eating perennial produces "pitchers" which are hollow, modified leaves covered with a "hood" to keep rainwater out and insects trapped inside. Insects are attracted to the intoxicating nectar and become trapped by the downward pointing hairs on the inside of the pitcher. Once the insects fall into the pool of liquid in the base of the pitcher, they are digested by plant's enzymes. 'Doodle Bug' is a vigorous grower that produces green, cobra-shaped pitchers with prominent red veins around the yellow to white top of the pitcher. In autumn, the pitchers turn bright cherry red.
