Bought this along with my S purpurea venosa, and of coarse it was packed well--it's a beautiful plant and I really like it.

These are real cuties too December 7, 2015
Reviewer: Ramon L. Nelson from Willow Springs, MO United States  
I bought several of these for their bright yellow to go alone with the beautiful reds of the other Sarracenia. With a few green and white type of Sarracenia, these yellow lovelies are a great addition for the 'The Dog Barn'.

Nice Plant and Nice Packaging September 26, 2015
Reviewer: Keith Coleman from Topeka, KS United States  
I ordered one S. x "Yellow Jacket" and one S. rosea.  Both plants arrived in great condition.  I have never had anyone so carefully pack and ship carnivorous plants to me; I was surprised.  The S. x "Yellow Jacket" is a beautiful plant and is larger than I expected for a small plant.  It is an intriguing plant; it has yellow pitchers, yellow and red pitchers, and green and red pitchers.  I am very satisfied with my order.

Received a very nice order from Sarracenia Northwest consisting of Sarracenia x "Yellow Jacket",a nice sundew and a Mexican pingicula. The plants were well grown, arrived in prime condition and were very healthy. Keep up good work in shipping quality material!
