What's a Feist Dog Sarracenia? It's a unique, seed-grown Sarracenia that we can't identify! The term Feist Dog originates from the rural regions of the southern United States and refers to small, mixed-breed hunting dogs. And just like dogs, each Feist Dog pitcher plant has a personality unique to its own. The only catch is that we don't know what's behind it!
For 2020, we are releasing a batch of seedlings from open pollination. When we sowed them, we placed several seeds together to germinate. When the seedlings were mature enough, we transferred the entire clump into a larger pot. These are the plants that are for sale.
These are seedlings entering their third season. These plants are particularly colorful that we normally would set these aside to evaluate their potential as cultivars. You will receive a minimum of 2 plants per 4-inch pot. Sold Out!
These seedlings are entering their third season and represent plants that didn't quite make the cut for Batch 1, but they are still attractive. You will receive a minimum of 2 plants per 4-inch pot.
These seedlings are entering their third season and are predominantly from Sarracenia purpurea mother plants. With open pollination you will have a wonderful variety of shapes, sizes, and color. You will receive a minimum of 2 plants per 4-inch pot.
These seedlings are entering their second season and are predominantly from Sarracenia purpurea mother plants. With open pollination you will have a wonderful variety of shapes, sizes, and color. You will receive a minimum of 3 plants per 3-inch pot.
