Large plants have substantial crowns and rhizomes and are divisions from select mother plants in our collection. Each plant is shipped in a 4-inch pot. Pitchers are expected to reach 24 inches during their first season after division.
All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.
