General Description
This plant is relative new in cultivation. Its leaves have an unusual shape - broad and succulent-like with a pointed tip - likely the result of its complex parentage, Pinguicula medusina x (moranensis x ehlersiae). In bright locations, its leaves turns dark pink.

In winter, this plant will drop its large leaves and produce a rosette of smaller leaves. It will remain in this dormant state until late spring.

Beautiful plants! February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Rose from South san francisco, CA United States  
I ordered a few different Butterworts.  When they arrived I was astonished at what good shape they were in and how mature the plants were.  I was expecting a small plant but these were good size and very healthy. I've paid much more for far less elsewhere.  I'll be ordering from Sarracenia again.
