    In addition to an excellent plant, which arrived typically well-packaged, plant protected, I always was abler to receiver expert advice on this as well as protecting plants in our cold winter state of Wisconsin. Trustworthy and dependable are two of the many qualities of Sarracenia Northwest. Nonpareil.

    I got it in May, I now have two plants. They are both catching flies. It hasn't grown as much as the King Henry though.
