General Description
 
This hybrid is one of delicate beauty and elegance. Its pitchers have a wide mouth, and the hoods are patterned with thick reddish brown veins against a light green background. All were from seed, so some variation will occur. During the hottest parts of summer, the plant will take a short siesta. In late summer when the weather cools, look for another set of pitchers to take you into the fall season. Look for lots of red flowers in spring.

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.

Arrived ready to grow June 13, 2017
Reviewer: Charlie from Valencia, PA United States  
The plant arrived well packaged and in good shape. It soon grew 2 new leaves which are now 18 inches tall and ready to catch bugs. Within the past week it has also grown a tall shoot with a flower.
