General Description
 
Margaret Eng loved nature, animals, and the outdoors. She worked for the Outdoor School in Portland, Oregon and was a strong advocate of bringing the natural sciences to school children. We were fortunate to have known a gentle, yet passionate, soul, so we named this plant after her.

This plant has lots of white spots throughout the upper parts of the pitcher. They appear on the front beneath the lip and wrap around to the back. The hood features a graceful pattern of red viens and frilled edges. A mature plant will produce a massive rhizome that can be easily divided. Pitchers of this plant also last throughout winter.

Plants You Receive
Plants are shipped in 4-inch pots with proper growing media. Each plant is a division from select mother plants in our collection. Pitchers are expected to reach 12 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.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.
