Making hybrids with Sarracenia psittacina is tricky because it usually flowers after other Sarracenia are done blooming. But, we got lucky when a single S. psittacina bloomed at the same time as S. purpurea montana. The best part was that it happened to be a yellow form of montana!
The batch of seedings we have for sale are approximately 3-4 years old.
