So hey, remember our Corpse Flower? Yeah, it’s fruiting now.

(And no, you can’t eat the fruit. Unless you’re a hornbill.)

libutron:

Pitcher Plant hybrid - Sarracenia x moorei
Sarracenia x moorei (Ericales - Sarraceniaceae) is a naturally occurring hybrid between Sarracenia leucophylla and S. flava. In addition to its gigantic proportions, this hybrid is outstanding because of its stunning coloration. The lower three quarters of the pitchers are lime green, and the pitcher tops are lemon yellow with large areoles and light red veining. The ala is lined in red. The nectar roll is pronounced, undulated and mottled with red.
The ranges of the parents overlap in Georgia, Alabama and the Florida panhandle, in the United States.
