Utricularia warburgii is a species of terrestrial bladderwort found in China, where it grows in sunny wet meadows at an altitude of 900 m.[1] It belongs to the section Nigrescentes and is closely related to U. caerulea.

In the spring Utricularia warburgii produces 5–20 cm. flower scapes bearing 2-6 violet-blue flowers, 8mm in size and bearing a yellow splotch at the throat.[1]

The cultivation of this species is not difficult, and is similar to other commonly cultivated terrestrial Utricularia.[1] Plants are best grown in a mixture of peat and sand that is kept constantly moist to wet and placed in bright light conditions.[1]
