Sarracenia purpurea 'Jersey Girl' is a beautiful plant that is quite cold tolerant. It produces upright, somewhat squat pitchers that are initially pink but mature to a dark purple as the season progresses. It does a great job of keeping its pitchers through the winter as well. In the spring, if mature enough, it will produce a beautiful, deeply marron flower high above the foliage. Zone 4-9.

Sarracenia care: American pitcher plants like to be outdoors. They do well in full sun, bog environments. Make sure their roots and rhizomes stay wet during the growing season. If you must water them, use rain, RO or distilled water. They can tolerate high temperatures as long as they do not dry out. Sarracenias are hardy to zones 4. During the winter they will go dormant and stop producing pitchers. You can protect them from hard freezes and biting winds by covering with leaves and burlap during the coldest winter months. Make sure they do not go dry during this time. In the spring they will ‘wake up’ and produce new pitchers and flower if old enough.
