Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea
Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea Canada's Carnivorous Plant pride! Our only pitcher plant but it widespread across every province and territory with the possible exception of the Yukon. Low-growing rosettes of green to purple leaves, with flowers held far above the plant. The flower structure can be a dead give a way to the location of a plant even when the rosettes can't be seen. Typically occurs in bogs and other wetlands but can sometimes be found on unusual soils (like some populations around the great lakes). It is also the provincial flower of Newfoundland!
