General Description
 
Besides watching this plant attract insects from all parts of your garden, the real joy is watching it change colors with the seasons. In spring, it produces green pitchers and red flowers. By late summer to early fall, its pitchers develop a distinctive yellow hue. By mid-fall after the first frost of the season, upper parts of the pitchers turn neon yellow! By late winter, they turn red.

This pitcher plant is also one of the most vigorous ones available. If you’re looking for a pitcher plant that grows fast and establishes quickly, this is for you.
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 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.

Such cool plants June 3, 2018
Reviewer: Rebecca Jager from Baker City, OR United States  
Plants from Sarracenia NW are always healthy when they arrive.  I added these two to one I had received as a gift for Christmas and they are all thriving.  One of the new ones has a blossom I hadn't expected.  So fun.  My Picasa is not responding so I can't include the picture.  :(
