General Description
When this plant first popped up in our nursery, we dubbed it Red Minor, referring to its appearance of the species, Sarracenia minor. Despite its name, it's definitely a hybrid, S. minor x (purpurea x psittacina). It's pitchers stand straight and display a deep red color with white speckles on its back. It grows rather slowly and produces only a handful of pitchers each season, so you'll need a healthy dose of patience. The plant seems to enjoy warm muggy summers with an extended growing season.
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 6-8 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.

Reviewer: Mark Bauer from Pewaukee, WI United States  
One of the Minor brothers, this of intense red, while leucophylla x has deep reddish brown & in contrast simply minor is somewhat plain. Having all three in a group is wonderful for comparison. Red arrived in perfect health and sits in water next to his brothers. Love it!
