General Description
 
Besides watching this plant attract insects from all parts of your garden, the real joy is watching it change colors with the seasons. In spring, it produces green pitchers and red flowers. By late summer to early fall, its pitchers develop a distinctive yellow hue. By mid-fall after the first frost of the season, upper parts of the pitchers turn neon yellow! By late winter, they turn red.

This pitcher plant is also one of the most vigorous ones available. If you’re looking for a pitcher plant that grows fast and establishes quickly, this is for you.
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 8 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.

Amazing Purchase June 22, 2015
Reviewer: Matthew Bowers from Statesville, NC United States  
Wonderful plant. Arrived with 2 stems growing...stems opened up to full pitchers in a week and has produced 3 more pitchers since then. Great packaging considering it came from West coast to East coast. Great plant for moderate to full sunlight in hot and humid NC weather. Growing so big I even had to maintain a few stems to keep them upright. 5 pitchers between 4-13 in. height and approximately 4 cm. diameter. Easy to take care of and full of life!

Awsome!!!! November 29, 2014
Reviewer: Robert Ramey from Zachary, LA United States  
Having ordered other plants online and experienced the mishmash and gunk that other vendors send I was in awe of the rubra that I received!! The packaging was something you could ship a new born baby across the country in and not fear for it's safety and the plant itself was at least 10X better than I expected from a sight-unseen purchase. I plan to purchase more in the Spring to add to my collection!!!! Thanks a lot for the fine service!!!!!!!
