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.

    The customer service is prompt and first rate. Every order I get has been exactly as described on their web sight and well worth the money. All plants I have bought in the last year or more have been carefully packed. It should be obvious this is a first class establishment that cares for their plants AND customers.
