Sarracenia flava, Mixed Forms

(3 reviews) Write a Review
Sarracenia flava, commonly called the yellow trumpet, is a handsome plant. Multitudes of upright traps spring up from dense growth points. A cluster of pitcher will form a canopy of broad, flat lids - the perfect landing spot for flies. At our nursery, we have several of the natural forms of Sarracenia flava. Very often pollen from one form will drift to another form and create an impure form of flava. Seedlings of this type of open pollination pop up a lot and occur in various colors, patterns, and sizes. However, because they're not pure forms, we have a hard time categorizing them. So, we lump them all together and release them as Mixed Forms. All plants are selected strictly at random.
