General Description
 
We first saw this hybrid in a book, Gardening with Carnivores by Nick Romanowski (University Press of Florida, 2002). On first sight, we knew we had to have it as part of our collection. Luckily we found a grower who had one in stock and we quickly acquired it. This was about 15 years ago. Since then, that single mother plant has produced hundreds of divisions for us.



We don't know the exact parentage of this plant, but some growers suggested that it may be Sarracenia leucophylla x (rubra x psittacina). Others indicated that it's Sarracenia leucophylla x [(purpurea x psittacina) x (leucophylla x psittacina)]. As of date, we don't know who created the hybrid, so we can't confirm it's exact parentage, but it seems to have originated in Australia.

Nice Compact Plant July 11, 2019
Reviewer: William from CA, United States  
Plant was delivered within a reasonable amount of time and was undamaged due to excellent packing.  Within a few weeks, several pitchers have formed and plant is continuing to thrive since received.  Wonderful looking hybrid.  Thank you, Sarracenia Northwest!

July 22, 2018
Reviewer: Terry Mann from Mondovi, WI United States  
Arrived in great shape, as usual. Not as many initial pitchers as the Tarnok shipped in the same order but pitchers are larger and the hoods are broader and ruffled, very showy.
