Pitchers on this hybrid are brightly colored. The white specks against the dark red background seem to sparkle, adding good cheer to your garden.

Excellent experience July 5, 2017
Reviewer: Cory Christiansen from North Liberty, IA United States  
I have been totally impressed with how the plants were shipped, the quality of the plants when they arrived, and the information available on the website for novice  carnivorous plant growers.  I am successfully growing pitcher plants in my home which I thought I would never be able to do.  Thank so much!

Excellent Purchase June 5, 2016
Reviewer: Rob Farrow from San Diego, CA United States  
I recently purchased a Sarracenia x Sweet Excellence. I'm happy to say, not only did it arrive promptly and in excellent shape, it's also growing rapidly and capturing lots of insects.
