General Description
 
One word – WOW! This rare variety of Sarracenia flava is sure to capture your attention. It develops solid red tubes with contrasting yellow lids. Some folks remark how much the plant looks like a flame. It will definitely set your garden ablaze with excitement!

This variety grows much slower than the typical variety, so you'll need to be patient. To maintain its deep red colors, give it 10 or more hours of direct sunlight daily. Otherwise, it won't produce red pitchers and will look like a typical yellow trumpet. It also helps if you have a long growing season.

Reviewer: Drey Winter from Apopka, FL United States  
Recieved plant fast, Packaged with care. Plant came as a division which quickly grew two pitchers. One is about 12 inches so far while the other is about six inches. Highly recommended.

Status July 19, 2015
Reviewer: Leo C Song Jr from Placentia, CA United States  
The plant arrived in excellent condition.  I really liked the ingenuous way the pitchers were protected by the hour glass configuration of plastic cups!
I have put into a larger pot as a gift to a very close friend who likes really red Sarrs,  Too bad you were out of the red minors ;=((  
I will order more from you in the future  Will be monitoring your website frequently.  Thankd you for providing these plants and shipping them so they arrive in optimum condition.

Stunning July 17, 2015
Reviewer: Justin Shepherd from Driftwood, TX United States  
These plants are truly spectacular, grown so well they look like wild specimens. Flawless shipping. These plants are not tiny! I only had one problem- These plants red color is so mesmerizing that they have taken the attention away from the typical Sarracenia Flavas! Thanks, SNW. Will be ordering again.
