Visitors to Cliffe Castle Museum this summer will have the chance to see a selection of exotic carnivorous pitcher plants fresh from this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

The 25 brightly coloured sarracenia took award-winning local gardener Malcolm Sunderland over twenty years to develop and have featured in several prestigious flower shows.

The plants are known for luring insects and devouring them using digestive enzymes.

The sarracenia are on display at Cliffe Castle until 26 June.

Coun Sarah Ferriby, Environment, Sport and Culture Portfolio Holder, said: “This is a rare opportunity to see world class Chelsea Flower Show specimens so we are very proud to display such beautiful and fascinating plants at Cliffe Castle.”
