My New Collection Of Pitcher Plants

Last month, I went to Sharon, Connecticut to shop at Trade Secrets, my favorite rare plant and garden antiques sale.  As usual, I found many fabulous plants and objects.  I was drawn to one vendor, in particular, who was selling assorted Sarracenia, or pitcher plants.  Sarracenia is a kind of carnivorous plant, meaning they trap and consume animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods.  I find carnivorous plants fascinating and Sarracenia are also quite beautiful to look at, and I had just the right place to display them.
