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 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.

Wonderful 1st time experience, will purchase more! November 5, 2017
Reviewer: Alyssa Pratt from Portland, OR United States  
Upon receiving the package, I was immediately impressed with how the plant was packed. And thank you for making it easy to succeed in providing care for this plant. This was the first time I have made a purchase of a carnivorous plant and by following the detailed instructions of the care guide that was provided, I have been able to keep it alive without much effort. I can't wait to see more pitchers form!
Thank you. I will be ordering again.

New Pets August 9, 2017
Reviewer: Kathryn Kelly from Pittsburgh  
The two Sarracenia x Mountain Splendor that I ordered in July arrived in excellent condition.  I am impressed with the care taken in packaging for mailing.
They are feeding well; there are some brown spots along the sides of the pitchers that indicate this.
I named them, 'Audrey3' and 'Garth'.  I am looking forward to ordering some companions, additional carnivores, for my 'babies' from you in the future.
