This southern beauty has stunning patterns in its hood, which are best
seen when the plant is backlit with early evening sunlight. It's one of the most colorful Sarracenia in our collection. Look for
its best pitchers of the season in late summer through the first frost
of fall. Grows a bit slower than other Sarracenia, but it is well worth the wait!
