S flava
Sarracenia Sar`ra*ce"ni*a, n. [NL. So named after a Dr. Sarrazin of Quebec.] (Bot.) A genus of American perennial herbs growing in bogs; the American pitcher plant. [1913 Webster]

Note: They have hollow pitcher-shaped or tubular leaves, and solitary flowers with an umbrella-shaped style. {Sarracenia purpurea}, the sidesaddle flower, is common at the North; {S. flava}, {rubra}, {Drummondii}, {variolaris}, and {psittacina} are Southern species. All are insectivorous, catching and drowning insects in their curious leaves. See {Illust}. of Sidesaddle flower, under {Sidesaddle}. [1913 Webster]
