Sarracenia x Doodle Bug

(2 reviews) Write a Review
The flamboyant Doodle Bug looks like its dressed up for Mardi Gras! Doodle Bug's pitchers are some of the most colorful possible in Sarracenia, with orangey-yellow complexions fading to crimson red and then to green, laced with red veins and speckled with hundreds of tiny white light windows. Unlike most other Sarracenia hybrids, Doodle Bug grows close to the soil, its traps roughly candy-cane-shaped, arching upward before ballooning open to a cowled mouth. This is a late season plant, so look for its best pitchers in late summer and early fall.
