Sarracenia flava x minor

(3 reviews)

This cross is pretty strange. Rarely encountered in cultivation, it makes for a striking deviation from the abundance of white-top pitcher hybrids that are so popular. Pitchers are moderately tall, and almost pure yellow-green. The lid is domed, broad, elongated, and cowled over the opening of the black-rimmed mouth. Though a simple plant, the vivid color and the concealed opening to the trap give this one a unique appearance.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 12 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.

• 2nd-season division from select mother plants. (NOT a recent division.)
• Acclimated for outdoor growing.
• Shipped in a 4-inch pot. Care instructions are included.

Photos illustrate summer growth. Pitchers may not be present during other seasons. See below for more information.

    The plant arrived dormant but has now sprouted. It looks healthy and has one very large pitcher.
