Random Hybrids - Feist Dog Sarracenia (MEDIUM)
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. Preview the photos and select the plant you want.
Photo #1 consists of mature divisions from a large Feist Dog specimen. All other photos are undivided plants.
(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.)
