Sarracenia flava ornata

(20 reviews) Write a Review
Of all the varieties of Sarracenia flava, ornata stands out from the crowd like a movie star. Unlike other forms of this species, the ornata form has thick red pinstripes against an orangey-yellow background. Foliage is tall and broad in optimal conditions. A wide, orangey lid exposes a blood-red throat patch in the interior of a generous, yellow-rimmed mouth. Taking a look at this variety up close, you can see heavy amounts of honey-like nectar, oozing plentifully in anticipation of its most common prey - yellowjackets and flies. The random form is seed grown with multiple growth points and has red veins; the Bulloch County is from division and has reddish brown, almost black, veins.

    Four new traps already. Great form but small. About six inches tall. Next time I will get a larger plant. Still a very pretty specimen.

    So I when I first checked out I was a little shocked by the shipping cost of two plants (20usd est.) But when the plants arrived already in there pots I understood why. I’m very glad they were too as it made things a lot easier for me as far as care. Printed care Guides were given on both plants and I was also given a cd that was Full of tips for care for all kinds of carnivorous plants. Truely spectacular. The flava ornata is just now getting its first spring pitcher, I can’t wait to see how it turns out
