Sarracenia alata x minor

(37 reviews)

One of the most vigorous crosses we have, this plant grows tall like with white spots and a slightly cowled lid. In late spring and early summer, the traps develop a wonderful orange hue, which mellow to green by mid-summer. As a bonus, it retains most of its pitchers during the winter months. Plants can become quite large, dividing readily and growing quickly. Foliage is uniform and substantial, typically reaching 12-16 inches tall . A great plant for the first-time grower!

Height: 12-16 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.

2nd Season Divisions
After dividing our mother plants in spring, we grow the divisions for a year before releasing them. You get a more vigorous plant with a healthier root system when compared to a recent division.

All outdoor perennials experience seasonal changes at our nursery in Oregon.
January-March: Plant is dormant with no pitchers.
April: Spring growth will appear by the end of the month.
May: Fully developed pitchers will gradually appear.
June-August: Full display of pitchers.
September: Plant produces its best pitchers of the season.
October: Dormancy begins. Fewer pitchers. No new growth until spring.
November-December: Plant is dormant. Browned pitchers are cut off.

    We're mid-dormancy at the moment but the pitchers retained from the last growing season are gorgeous and robust, so I know there will be more to come in springtime!

    Yet another wonderfully packaged and healthy, exquisite plant. Love the colors and the features of two different genera. Since then several mature pitchers have appeared. SNW has the best and does the best (packaging, servicing, videos and advising). Anyone new to carnivorous plants is quickly educated by their team of Jacob and Jeff.

    This pitcher plant arrived in a carefully packaged container and look very healthy. They are taller than I anticipated, but are beautiful and make a nice addition to my garden. I'm sure they've already caught their fair share of insects!

    The rhizome you sent was enormous and is growing very bright green pitchers. Extremely pleased with this plant.
