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