(6 reviews) Write a Review
This is one of several hybrids with flava and oreophila parentage in our collection (see Extreme Green and Don's Flava). This particular hybrid is shorter, about 12 inches, but packs a punch with its eye-catching maroon veins. If you're looking for an attractive early-season Sarracenia, add this hybrid to your garden.

    Superb plant!

    This plant arrived in perfect condition. It has genetics, not the same clone found elsewhere. Stunning in elegance and very heavily veined, it couldn't be better and is the best specimen of this cross I've ever seen.
