General Description
 
King Henry is a new cultivar. It's produces upright yellow traps. The mouths of the traps have a splash of reddish orange. It grows very vigorously and sends up multiple traps at once. We've had this variety in our collection for only a year. We've noticed that the plant produces larger than normal traps when it matures, up to 1 1/2 inches. Because of the long petioles, the leaves flop over due to the weight of the large traps. This is probably why it was called King Henry!

5 of 5 Great plants May 29, 2020
Reviewer: Kerry S. from Black River Falls, WI United States  
These plants came in great condition and have continued to do well after planting. I have one in a bathtub garden and one in a water dish on the back porch. These are the best flytraps I have ever bought and I have purchased many. I also purchased the beginners guide to carnivorous plants which is easy to read and has alot of great information.
