Sarracenia Dixie Lace
This southern beauty has stunning patterns in its hood, which are best seen when the plant is backlit with early evening sunlight. It's one of the most colorful Sarracenia in our collection. Look for its best pitchers of the season in late summer through the first frost of fall. Grows a bit slower than other Sarracenia, but it is well worth the wait! Pitchers reach up to 12 inches.

I had this years ago and lost it during a freakish cold snap in early October. I've wanted to get a replacement for this beauty and so I was delighted to see it offered here. I bought two of them and they are both perfectly grown by Sarracenia Northwest.
