Here are some pictures of the pitchers taken last fall shortly after they were planted.  Click on the thumbnail to see the big pitcher - err, picture.  The pitchers are actually leaves, and the pitcher plant gets much of its sustenance from photosynthesis, supplementing its diet with bugs.  The pitchers mostly died back over the winter, although a few of them survived in part.

The big green pitcher plant has a flower.  At least that's what I think it is, although I can't quite see how it works.  It's about two inches long.

The smaller red pitcher plant also has some flowers underway, although they don't seem to be quite as far along.  They're about half an inch in diameter.
