General Description
 
This is an amazing plant and is one of our favorite hybrids, Sarracenia alata x minor, affectionately called Alatamin at our nursery. It grows tall like a pale pitcher (Sarracenia alata), and it has white spots and a slightly curved hood like a hooded pitcher (Sarracenia minor). In late spring and early summer, the pitchers develop a wonderful orange hue, which turn green by mid summer. This plant retains most of its pitchers during the winter months.

Not only is this a great plant for first-time growers, it is a great plant to capture those pesky wasps and yellow jackets. These insects go crazy for the nectar on this plant.

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 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.

Doing great so far April 4, 2017
Reviewer: J.Remy from Davenport, IA United States  
Received this a month ago and the plant already has one shoot about 10" tall with another at about 6". Once it started growing, it shot up extremely fast. Hopefully it continues to do well!  Shipping was great, looks like a lot of attention was put into the package. It arrived in Iowa on a 20 degree day, but had heating pads inside.
