General Description
 
During our first open house in July 2008, many customers commented on this particular plant. They were fascinated by its tall red pitchers and clustered, vigorous form. At the time, it was an unnamed, random hybrid that we acquired from another grower who grew it from seed. On close inspection, we determined that it could be Sarracenia flava var. rubricorpora x leucophylla. It definitely is a remarkable plant, and many customers were interested in acquiring a division.

Sadly, just days after that first open house, our 12-year old nursery dog, Hank, passed away. In tribute to a gentle and loyal dog, we decided to name the unknown hybrid after him. The decision seemed right and natural since both Hank and the hybrid have similar attributes:
• Both are big.
• Both are unconfirmed mixed breeds.
• Both are red.
• Both are hefty eaters.
• Both received lots of attention from customers.
• Both are easy going and love to play in the water.
• Both love to bask in the sun.
• Both enjoy playing in the snow.
Hank was a fantastic companion for us at the nursery. We hope Sarracenia Hank becomes an equally fantastic companion in your garden in the years to come. Give this plant lots of direct sunlight to bring out its beautiful red colors.

Strong and Tall May 15, 2019
Reviewer: Quinn from Los Angeles, CA United States  
I love this hybrid! I bought one in the summer of 2018 and now that spring 2019 has come around it has absolutely exploded out of dormancy and is further along than any of my other pitchers. The pitchers are already 15" tall and the color is really unique. If you're looking for a big, impressive plant I would definitely recommend putting some time into this one.
