S. minor Walter (hooded pitcher plant) is the only erect species with a recurved hood that completely covers the tube-like leaves. The conspicuously hooded leaves are often reddish green at the top and spotted white along the upper portion of the tube. Although a smaller species, to only 3 dm (almost to 12 inches) tall, these plants are often conspicuous in early spring when their bright yellow, odorless flowers dot open wetlands. S. minor is our widest ranging species, extending from Gadsden and Gulf Counties south to Highlands and Okeechobee Counties.
