General Description
 
In the 1990s we crossed Sarracenia oreophila with Sarracenia rubra ssp. jonesii, two very rare, yet vigorous, growers. From the batch of seedlings, we selected a particular form that was absolutely stunning. The mouth of the pitchers were large, and the hood was slightly wavy with bronze hues. Pitchers were heavily veined. Overall, the plant was a vigorous grower and produced two distinct sets of pitchers, one in early season, and another in late season when the weather cools down.

The prized feature of this plant, however, was its bright peach-colored flowers that bloom in mid spring. This hybrid is one of the most prolific bloomers in our collection.
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 8-12 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.
