North American pitcher plants are the easiest to grow, largest, most beautiful bug-eating plants. Because they are native to the Southeast United States, most varieties are cold-hardy to zero degrees Fahrenheit. You can grow them in a dish garden with sundew and venus flytrap or add them to your landscape in a bog garden or water feature.
Venus Fly Traps
Venus flytraps are native to coastal North and South Carolina. Their leaves have “snap traps” that catch bugs for fertilizer. Grow them in a big pot or in a bog garden. Cold hardy to zero degrees.
