(Pitcher Plant) Sarracenia 'Redbug' PP13,412 is an unusual bug eating perennial that captivates the attention of children (and adults too!). 'Redbug' 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. 'Redbug' has wine-red pitchers with deeper red veining and a slightly wavy or scalloped hood. When grown in more shade, the pitchers are green. Environmental conditions, such as heat and humidity, may also affect the color of the pitchers.
