Dionaea muscipula "King Henry Flytrap"
This variety of flytrap 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. It also 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!

Our King Henry arrived nicely. It's beautiful and doing great out in this wacky weather! Thank you!
The King Henry I received was very healthy and nice shape after being shipped.
the flytrap is doing great its a lot smaller then i thought it would be and the traps are pretty small to im hoping next year i will see bigger traps !
Impressed with the condition they arrived in and the quality of the plant. Beautiful.
The healthiest carnivorous plant Iâ€™ve ever purchased. I highly recommend this company!
These plants came in great condition and have continued to do well after planting. I have one in a bathtub garden and one in a water dish on the back porch. These are the best flytraps I have ever bought and I have purchased many. I also purchased the beginners guide to carnivorous plants which is easy to read and has alot of great information.
Excellent service and product. Our flytrap arrived safely through the mail and is thriving!
