Beautiful specimen March 19, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Milan from Holly, MI United States  
The Sarracenia purpura "Sylvia" arrived in great shape, well potted, and dormant. Within two weeks in my greenhouse it has started sending up two pitchers . It has the most beautiful rich red color. I am very pleased!! I will not hesitate to buy again from Sarracenia Northwest.

My sarracenia purpurea arrived well-packed, and very healthy.  It is healthy, and growing vigorously, with several new pitchers.
