Pinguicula grandiflora, commonly known as the large-flowered butterwort, is a temperate insectivorous plant in the Lentibulariaceae family. One distinguishing feature of the species is its flower, which is much larger than the average for the genus. Pinguicula are half hardy perennials that reach a height of 12 to 20cm. They have rosette leaves and bloom from spring to summer with lipped, funnel shaped purple, white or yellow flowers. The size of Pinguicula genus plants makes them ideal for growing in rock gardens. A common name for Pinguicula is Butterwort. Latin names include Pinguicula vulgaris, Pinguicula grandiflora and P. agnata and Pinguicula moranensis.
