This is an intervarietal S. flava with extraordinary features - yellow pitchers with red veins, a red pouty lip, and a wavy hood. As summer progress, pitcher lips turn dark red. Pitchers on mature plants are also quite tall, approaching 36 inches at our nursery. It also grows rather quickly and forms large clumps that can be easily divided.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 36 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.
