Out of Stock


We apologize for the inconvenience. As much as we would love to have you visit us and share our plants with you, we value your health and safety. Based on CDC projections (and our comfort level in managing large groups of people during this time period), we decided to cancel our open houses for 2020.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

1. Reservations are required!
The reservation fee is per vehicle. The nursery is on residential property, so parking space is very limited. The reservation fee is credited towards your purchase of plants at the nursery. Think of it as a minimum purchase to visit the nursery, but you pay it ahead of time to secure your spot.

After reserving your time slot, your name will automatically be included on the guest list. Your order number is your "ticket." You can also bring as many guests as you can safely fit into your car.

The reservation fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable within 48 hours of your reservation. Certain dates fill up quickly, so last-minute cancellations mean a lost opportunity for another grower to attend.

2. Directions are sent via email two days prior to the event.
On Wednesday prior to your reservation, we will email you directions to the nursery and confirm your attendance.

3. Visit us only during your selected time slot.
We allow visitors on the premises only during scheduled open houses. Please respect our privacy and visit us only during your reserved time slot. Unscheduled visits will be declined. Sorry, no exceptions.

4. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather.
The nursery is open air with very little shelter. If it's hot and sunny, you'll sweat. If it rains, you’ll get wet. The walkways are non-paved, so make sure that you wear proper shoes. A portable toilet will be available onsite.

5. Keep your dogs at home.
For everyone's safety and the safety of our plants, please keep your dogs at home. We also strongly discourage leaving dogs in cars during your visit.

While we have a nursery dog who we have trained to leave our plants alone and not jump on people, she will be leashed or fenced during the open house.

Certified service dogs on harnesses and trained to perform a specific task are welcomed. Please let us know in advance.

Reservation fee is per vehicle and is applied to your plant purchase.

    Truly a spectacular experience

    Posted by Will Ranger on February 9, 2020

    Sarracenia Northwest has always been a very important part of my life, after all, this wonderful place was the sole reason why I got into this amazing hobby. Their staff has helped me through problems with my plants, shipped me plants in perfect condition, and has been a wonderful resource for furthering my plant growing skills. This year, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Sarracenia Northwest during one of their July open houses, and it was truly an incredible experience. I enjoyed touring the nursery, purchasing plants, and getting my questions answered by the knowable staff of Sarracenia Northwest. They were even kind enough to ship my plants back to my residence, eliminating the need for me to trek the plants home in my carry on. Overall, just a fantastic experience that I will cherish for many years to come.

    Excellent way to spend the day

    This was my second time around going to an SNW Open House. I think it's enough to say that I am eagerly (and patiently) waiting for the following spring/summer to go to another open house at the SNW nursery. Friendly staff, great coffee and snacks, and awesome plants. Thanks a lot!

    Open house experience

    Posted by Bradley Noren on October 17, 2019

    I had a wonderful experience at the 9/14 open house/nursery. Jacob and the other staff members were courteous and helpful, patiently answering my novice questions. They offered advice on care and maintenance of the plants I purchased. I look forward to visiting again and adding to my collection of carnivorous plants. So glad that you guys are here; an amazing local source.

    This is a must do item.

    We found lots of great plants and learned a lot from the crew at the open house. A car full of people for $15 and everyone gets a free plant. Pretty cool.

    It just gets better every year!

    Every year we go to the Open House and every year we are NOT disappointed. I go home with a carload of healthy, vigorous, exotic plants. Plants I've purchased in previous years have survived through the winter outside and they come back every year a little bigger and a few more each spring. My cobra lily from 2018 has put out a whole colony of little ones around itself. The staff is always friendly and helpful which makes for an even better visit!
