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.

This is the first pitcher plant I've ordered so far. After unpacking it I was simply stunned by its beautiful colors. Can't wait till it reaches its full size.
