Sarracenia Barry

(1 review)

We acquired the mother plant from a fellow grower who named the plant Barry (as in inside joke). The plant is a vigorous grower and features a bronze hue that washes over the pitchers throughout the growing season. In spring, look for red-orange flowers. Its best pitchers are produced in spring and early summer. By mid season when the temperature heats up, the plant slows down significantly, but the color intensifies. Overall, it is a very attractive stout plant.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: 16-20 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

• Mature division in its second growing season. (NOT a new division.)
• Acclimated for outdoor growing.
• Shipped in a 4-inch pot. Care instructions are included.

Photos illustrate early summer growth. Pitchers may not be present during other seasons. See below for more information.
