General Description
Golden-Red Jubilee is another lovely cross created by John Hummer, this time of Sarracenia rubra jonesii x rubra alabamensis.

Traps are tall and gracile, similar to S. rubra jonesii except they are regularly almost twice as tall, and twice as veiny. Like S. rubra alabamensis, their primary complexion is golden-yellow. Early pitchers are narrower and less upright than late-season traps, which is what it is named for.

The name comes from the fantastic color scheme it assumes in late summer and early fall. Emerging around early September are much larger pitchers with orange-red veins against a yellow-gold background. Leaves are borne on tight networks of fast-growing rhizomes, densely clustered on small growth points. The display is a uniform fountain of golden-red pitchers, combining the best attributes of its parents.

Interesting Plant July 20, 2017
Reviewer: Keith Coleman from Topeka, KS United States  
My plant arrived in good shape.  It had been packed, as usual, very carefully.  It has some interesting leaves on it, but nothing that looks like a functional pitcher.  The plant is growing just fine, but the new leaves are still stringy and snake-like.  I suspect that the plant will be an unusual, nice-looking plant when it is in its prime.   ***RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST***  Thank you for your recent purchase!  Yes, this is normal for this hybrid in early and mid season.  It produces upright and most colorful pitchers in late summer.  That's when you'll get to see its golden-red namesake.

Another Beauty that I just had to have anotherone January 5, 2016
Reviewer: Ramon L. Nelson from Willow Springs, MO United States  
A great cluster of several plants that were all inter winding into and around themselves. A great buy as it seems as though you are getting 4 or 5 beautiful red plants.
