Sarracenia rosea is an American Pitcher Plant species found throughout Alabama and northern Florida. It has a compact, low to the ground form and produces tubby and very attractive pitchers. Since it often natural grows covered amongst grasses, rosea is typically more tolerant of shaded conditions than other species in the genus.
Much taxonomical debate exists concerning the southernly occurring rosea/purpurea plants. Some designate rosea as purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkei while others distinguish it as rosea. Based on our field observations, our opinion is that the populations are distinct enough to warrant separation; however, the matter is best left to researchers who are better equipped for taxonomical arguments.
Sarracenia rosea f. luteola (or Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkei f. luteola) is an anthocyanin free form which does not possess any pigmentation, including on its flowers. Plants are descended from a single plant found decades ago in Apalachicola National Forest.
