General Description
 
'Judith Hindle' is our best selling hybrid, hands down. Created in England in 1985, the plant quickly became a coveted classic. Widely regarded as one of the finest Sarracenia ever created, 'Judith Hindle' draws eyes every time we display it at market. It's pretty, enough to make you forget it's a sinister carnivore.

The traps are stunning. Young leaves are green streaked with red and heavily speckled with white around the top. The pitchers quickly convert to the deepest berry-red, leaving the top of the ruffled lid dotted with pink and white while the rest of the trap assumes darker complexions. Leaves are of medium height, rarely reaching more than 1 foot, and growth is compact and uniform. Older plants are somewhat more robust, but are otherwise identical to younger ones. It keeps many of its leaves through winter as well, charming even in dormancy. Its ease of growth and reliable nature makes 'Judith Hindle' a prize in any collection.

Parentage of 'Judith Hindle' includes Sarracenia flava, S. purpurea, and S. leucophylla.

5 of 5 common yet impressive April 21, 2017
Reviewer: Minh from GA USA  
I bought this plant last year and I see why this plant is so popular. It arrived in great condition and continue to grow and pretty much doubled its pitchers by the end of the season. It was very small (3 in pot), now its first set of pitchers are twice as many as last year and almost twice as tall. I re-potted it into a 5x5x7 square white pot (b/c GA is super hot) at the end of last season and it's doing very well. It looks like it has 3 growing points, so it's starting to divide. The color of the trap is very nice from start to finish. It starts out light with great veining and gets darker in late season. It's a very nice plant, highly recommended.

5 of 5 Beautiful pitcher August 8, 2016
Reviewer: Miguel Acuña from Portland, OR United States  
This plant is absolutely beautiful, and almost singlehandedly (pitcheredly?) took care of a nasty fruit fly problem.
