Pitcher Plants for fall color

Sarracenia Daina's Delight6

 

So many folks have become locked in to chrysanthemums as the only way to have fall color in the perennial garden, but we’d like to suggest you try sarracenias.  These North American natives are simply stunning this time of year.  Taken this week, this photo  is a pot of Sarracenia ‘Daina’s Delight’ that’s been growing, untouched, by our front walk for over a decade.  It’s potted in pure peat moss, with no drainage holes in the bottom of the container, but a couple at soil level on the sides to prevent standing water.  At least a few hours of full sun is necessary.
