General Description
 
In the 1990s we crossed Sarracenia oreophila with Sarracenia rubra ssp. jonesii, two very rare and robust species. The result is a robust hybrid with gorgeous flowers that range from peach to reddish-orange to yellow.

In spring this plant produces lots of flowers. By mid summer, the plant slows down and the early spring pitchers will darken. In late summer when the weather cools down, this plant will send up a new set of pitchers. Nice!

All plants for sale are sister plants to Mountain Splendor and vary slightly in appearance.

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 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.
