General Description
King Henry is a new cultivar. It's produces upright yellow traps. The mouths of the traps have a splash of reddish orange. It grows very vigorously and sends up multiple traps at once. We've had this variety in our collection for only a year. We've noticed that the plant produces larger than normal traps when it matures, up to 1 1/2 inches. Because of the long petioles, the leaves flop over due to the weight of the large traps. This is probably why it was called King Henry!

Awesome Healthy Plants!! December 31, 2017
Reviewer: Jared B from Ann Arbor, MI United States  
I ordered after a lot of procrastinating and after watching tons of Sarracenia  Northwest care videos on Youtube. These guys really care about what they do and they do it right. Packaging was top notch and even came with heat packs to keep them from freezing on the way to me here in Michigan. I would encourage buyers to take a look at the shipping schedule before you order so you know when your order will ship out. I ordered around the Holidays and so there seemed like a delay but it was really me not paying attention so no fault of theirs. It may be good to add that somewhere in the order process though so expectations are set up front. Overall I am very pleased and will order again.
