Random Hybrids - Feist Dog Sarracenia (SG)
Feist Dog Sarracenia are plants whose parentage we can't confirm. These plants seed-grown 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. Now, you can experience the fun of growing out one of these young plants and see how it matures. Appearance will vary from plant to plant, and each one will be a unique addition to your collection.
(The term Feist Dog originates from the rural regions of the southern United States and refers to small, mixed-breed hunting dogs. And just like mixed breed dogs, each Feist Dog pitcher plant has a personality unique to its own. Photos are for descriptive purposes. Size, shape, and color will vary considerably. All selection is done randomly. If you purchase multiple Feist Dogs, we will attempt to provide with an array of different features.)

My son loves surprises and mystery. We can't wait for them to get a bit bigger and see what they look like. Mutts are the best. Will order again
I don’t know what it is going on but I will try to find out *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** I'm sorry the plant didn't grow as you had expected! It's unusual for a plant to suddenly fall down and die. I reviewed my messages, and I didn't see any from you regarding this issue. We would love to help you figure out what happened. Please send us a message through Ask The Growers. You can find the link in the Care Info section. We look forward to hearing from you.
Large and very colorful purple tubes. It has been happy with the rain and periods of full sun on my east facing deck.
My plant arrived very quickly and was well packaged. I don't think it could have been in any better shape if I'd picked it up in person. The specimen itself was very robust with a thick crown and a couple of new growth points already. It had three large (14" tall) pitchers open, with one developing pitcher on the way up. The pitchers on my Feist Dog are predominantly green with white speckling around the mouth and hood, and some burgundy veining and splotches inside the hood. The pitcher and mouth shape look very much like Sarracenia leucophylla, but the hood takes on a more upward attitude, and is less wavy. I moved my plant into a much larger pot right away so it would be less vulnerable to cat attacks and have a larger water reservoir. The pitcher that was developing during shipping became stunted for some reason, and never finished developing. That didn't prevent my plant from producing three more gorgeous new pitchers in the month since I re-potted it. Two of them have opened nicely at the time of this review, with more on the way. The newest pitchers lack the burgundy coloration that is present on the original pitchers, but I admittedly have the plant receiving only 4-5 hours of direct sun. Overall, I was very happy to round out my monthly giveaway prize selection with this vigorous Sarracenia leucophylla stand-in.
What ingenious packaging....arrived in perfect condition. I will be back for more beautiful, healthy plants. Thank you so much!

This plant’s color is amazing. I can’t wait until next spring for growing season to see the colors again. Love this place
My garden is cleaner since I've included pitcher plants in my bug control program. The pitcher plants provide a organic, pesticide-free control. I've had pitchers in the garden for the past five years, but after seeing the pitcher tubes get filled to the brim, I decided to add more pitchers to keep up with the supply of bugs available. The shipping method designed by Sarracenia Northwest ensures that the tall, delicate pitcher plants arrive in excellent condition.
