General Description
 
One word – WOW! This striking 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. Tall, almost pure red traps catch just as many flies as they turn heads.

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.
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 for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

Reviewer: Mr Prytania from Chicago, IL United States  
My plant came strong healthy and very tall.  I was looking for a few larger plants and these fit the bill exactly for my new "bog".

5 of 5 Great company! June 3, 2019
Reviewer: SB from Lakewood, CA United States  
Plant was shipped fast and arrived intact.  Once I unboxed it and re-potted it, it really took off.  I'll definitely be ordering from here again
