General Description
 
Dessert has been served.

"Ruby Throat" is gorgeous cross of Sarracenia alata "Red Hood" x leucophylla. More like a strawberry sundae than a plant, its late-season traps are summer's delicious finale to tie you over into the holiday season. As a sweet late summer treat, the fall colors off "Ruby Throat" will attract you and pretty much any bug in your garden.

Leaves are tall, over 18 inches on adult plants, with an inflated throat immediately beneath the mouth. The lowest portions are pure green, but the upper third is a truly winning combination of dark red veining over a pure white complexion. The throat of the lid is conspicuously blood-red, almost black, extending through tho the rim of the mouth and into the underside of the hood. The exterior of the lid is white with pencil-thin red veins.

Changing of The Colors March 6, 2016
Reviewer: Ramon L. Nelson from Willow Springs, MO United States  
This plant is very interesting in how it will change colors as the seasons continues.  The pitchers start with green color... then change to yellow... and the they turn red.  Like having several plants all in one and for the price of only one plant.
