General Description
 
The actual parentage of this plant is Sarracenia leucophylla x x umlauftiana. We dubbed it Little Fledgling because of its demure resemblance to another hybrid called Fledgling. The two, however, are not at all related.

Pitchers of Little Fledgling are very colorful. The lower portion of the pitcher is red, which gradually develops into a splash of large white speckles. The hood is slightly flared. This is a great hybrid to complement taller Sarracenia hybrids.
Plants You Receive
Plants are shipped in 4-inch pots with proper growing media. Each plant is a division from select mother plants in our collection. Pitchers are expected to reach 6-8 inches during their first season after division.

All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.
