The green leaves are lance shaped with toothed margins on tall stems. It prefers consistenty damp, but not saturated, peaty, sandy, acidic soils, in full Sun. It is a moderate grower and spreads nicely from persistent rhizome clusters, but is a poor competitor with other plants. Bog Sabatia is a member of the Gentian Family. It presents a remarkable display among Pitcher Plants.
