Whats this?

On Monday I had a day out at Kew Gardens up in London, I will do a full post about it next week, but in the meantime how many people reading this blog can identify this flower? (answer next time)

  1. Ok, this is the flower of a Sarracenia, a genus of carnivorous plants native to the South East USA. They hybridise freely in cultivation, so I am not sure of the species, but it is probably S.flava or a hybrid thereof. They are fairly easy to gro and are often popular with flower arrangers - the pitchers and the seed heads both have interesting forms.
