General Description
 
We dubbed this plant Funky Flower because of its funky atypical flowers. The plant is Sarracenia flava var. rugelii x leucophylla. The pitchers are chartreuse with a red-brown splotch on the throat, a characteristic of rugelii. It's hood is partially frilly with red-brown veins. Overall, it's a fantastic grower. In spring, it produces flowers with long pink pastel petals.

Perfect September 9, 2015
Reviewer: ryan Worthington from Pawtucket, RI United States  
Unbelievable pitcher at least 20 inches tall and sprouting smaller ones at the base. Very happy with my order arrived safe and beautiful. This plant devours large wasps and hello jackets.  I look forward to future business with you guys.
