A carnivorous plant bearing showy, bright yellow, drooping flowers and erect, trumpet-shaped, hollow, inflated leaves; flowers have a musty odor.
This mostly southern plant has hollow leaves that fill with water in which insects and other small organisms drown; their soft parts are then digested by the plant. A similar species, Trumpet Pitcher-plant (S. alata), with fiddle-shaped petals and leaves without the purple constriction at the base of the hood, is found from Alabama west to Texas; its range apparently does not overlap with that of Trumpets. Green Pitcher-plant (S. oreophila), found in North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, is classified as an endangered species.
