Sarracenia Daniel Rudd II (*NEW)

(No reviews yet)

The original Sarracenia Daniel Rudd was bred by Adrian Slack, a well-respected pioneer of carnivorous plant cultivation back in the 1970s and 1980s. However, over the past several decades, the plant got mixed up with another that had similar features. That plant was later dubbed as "Fake Daniel Rudd" or "Daniel Rudd Imposter." Our plant is one of those, as is nearly all plants labeled as "Daniel Rudd" in the United States. The only place you will likely encounter a genuine Daniel Rudd is in England where it was first bred. But rather than calling this plant a fake or imposter, we decided to embrace its historical significance within the carnivorous plant community and call it Daniel Rudd II. Regardless of its name, it's a beautiful plant with white spots, red veins, and an undulated hood. Very attractive!
