Here in north Florida, P. sagittifolia is very habitat specific and
spotty in distribution. Seems that whenever I have found it, there has
always been the pitcher plant Sarracenia minor growing nearby, which
also has an irregular distribution, rare but locally common in the right
areas - acidic sphagnum boggy areas with little or no overhead tree
cover and minimal amounts of other types of weedy smothering vegetation.
They are easy to overlook, as the plants are small, but when blooming,
the beautiful snowy white spathe stands out like a sore thumb. Wherever
you find one, there are always more in the general vicinity. Definately
much more rare than P. virginica, which seems more common growing as an
aquatic emergent in shady areas, especially along rivers and creeks. I
can email digital images of both species in habitat to anyone interested.
