This is a three dimensional crepe paper sculpture life-size replica of a pitcher plant in bloom.

It is mounted in a shadow box, with plexi-glass that filters out some (not all) UV light. Ready to hang on wall; approximately 15” wide x 28” tall x 3.5” deep

Native to North America, the Sarracenia is found from the Great Lakes down the East Coast. They inhabit boggy areas with poor soil, taking their nutrients from insect prey. Their pitchers are modified leaves containing slippery surfaces and downward pointing hairs which trap insects in a small pool of digestive enzymes. Sarracenia flower in early spring before their pitchers are mature: nectar seeking bees press into the tight flower, picking up fresh and fallen pollen.
