Sarracenia x Cateo

(4 reviews) Write a Review
If you're looking for a large, fast-growing plant of outsized proportions, Cateo might be the one for you! Emerging early in spring, pitchers are of medium height (12 or so inches) with fabulous elephant-like yellow-green lids which cap the understated mouth. It represents a popular trend in Sarracenia collections to combine height with oversized lids. A single plant can appear to take up more space than most other Sarracenia because of its huge lid. Leaves gradually turn from green to orange-red throughout summer. It's best pitchers, however, are in early to mid summer.
