King Henry is a new cultivar. It's produces upright yellow traps. The mouths of the traps have a splash of reddish orange. It grows very vigorously and sends up multiple traps at once. We've had this variety in our collection for only a year. We've noticed that the plant produces larger than normal traps when it matures, up to 1 1/2 inches. Because of the long petioles, the leaves flop over due to the weight of the large traps. This is probably why it was called King Henry!

Natural Habitat:Coastal plains of North Carolina, USA
Type of Plant:Cold hardy perennial for outdoor growing.
Size of Adult Plants:
Can grow to 5 inches across with 1.5-inch traps.
