Feist Dog Sarracenia (MEDIUM) [DORMANT]
Feist Dog Sarracenia are plants whose parentage we can't confirm. These are Sarracenia from open-ar field crosses at our nursery. Many fine specimens that we have offered over the years have come from this sort of random pollination. Because they were first grown from seed, each one is a unique specimen. Each Feist Dog Sarracenia has a personality unique to its own!
(The term Feist Dog originates from the rural regions of the southern United States and refers to small, mixed-breed hunting dogs. Photos are for descriptive purposes. Size, shape, and color will vary considerably. All selection is done randomly.)
