Alabama Canebrake Pitcher

Have you seen this plant?

The Alabama Canebrake Pitcher Plant is a carnivorous plant that is unique to Alabama. It only grows in Autauga and Chilton counties. A few were found in Elmore County but they no longer grow there. Along with the Green Pitcher Plant the Cranebrake Pitcher Plant species listed as endangered by the U.S. Fish. If the plant is found in water the soil helps the plant grow. The nitrogen typically absorbs the water from the soil. If we keep the soil very very wet and damp it'll be easier for the plants to be found around our counties.
