Sarracenia flava maxima [DORMANT]

$34.95 $23.95
(7 reviews)

Despite its varietal name, maxima, this plant isn't necessarily larger than other varieties of S. flava. The feature that sets this one apart is its pure luminescent yellow-green hue, lacking any red veining. However, this is not a "pure green" form, as red pigment is visible in young developing pitchers, which gradually fade as the pitcher matures. A very vigorous and striking plant which emphasizes the classic Sarracenia form. Rewarding to grow, with eye-catching, robust traps. Its best pitchers occur in spring and early summer.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 18 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.
