Hummer's Okee Classic is a registered cultivar with the International Carnivorous Plant Society. Thought it's been around since 2002, this plant is rare to find. In fact, we only recently acquired a mother plant in 2017. Hopefully, we can generate enough divisions over the years to make this plant more available.
The plant has tall pitchers with a dark triangular hood that covers the opening of the pitcher. A very mature clump can produce pitchers up to 24 inches with hoods several inches across.

All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.
