GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: SARRA
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Sarracenia
GENUS AUTHORITY: L.
GENUS COMMON: Pitcherplant
GENUS SUMMARY: A genus of about 11 species, perennial insectivorous herbs, of e. North America. The sections that have sometimes been recognized do not accord with recent findings about clades and relationships within Sarracenia, so are not recognized here.
GENUS IDENTIFICATION: Identification notes: Hybrids between the various species of pitcher-plants are relatively frequent; see Bell (1952), Bell & Case (1956), Mellichamp (2008), and Mellichamp in FNA (2009) for further discussion. They are usually rather easy to determine, since they show intermediacy in characters, and usually are found in close proximity to both parents.

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Sarracenia jonesii
COMMON NAME: Mountain Sweet Pitcherplant
SYNONYMY: [= FNA, K3, V, W; < S. rubra - GW, Q, RAB, U, Z; = S. rubra ssp. jonesii (Wherry) Wherry - K1, X]
PHENOLOGY: May; Jul.
