Sarracenia alata Red hood x oreophila

(3 reviews)

This is one of the most vigorous hybrids in our collection, made with two very prolific plants. In spring, it produces green pitchers with some light red veins. In late season, it produces much more vibrant pitchers with brighter red veins. The insides of the pitchers also darken with red. On top of that, it clumps up very quickly. This hybrid was made with the red hood form of S. alata.

April: Spring growth will appear by the end of the month.
May: Fully developed pitchers will gradually appear.

    Normally, I wouldn't review dormant plants, but I was so impressed by the size of this rhizome that I will make an exception. It looks quite healthy with green leaf bases, and it was so big that I divided it into a mixed planter with Sarracenia leucophylla 'Tarnok'.
