Sarracenia x Fledgling

(9 reviews) Write a Review
We first saw this hybrid in a book, Gardening with Carnivores by Nick Romanowski (University Press of Florida, 2002). On first sight, we knew we had to have it as part of our collection. It has a beautiful fan-shaped hood with red veins against a white background. Luckily we found a grower who had one in stock and we quickly acquired it. Since then, that single mother plant has produced hundreds of divisions for us. As of date, we don't know who created the hybrid, so we can't confirm it's exact parentage, but it seems to have originated in Australia. Pitchers in early summer tend to be pinkish. As the weather heats up, the white colors intensify. Pitchers look their best in mid to late summer when the weather is hot and may reach 12-16 inches.

    Nice Compact Plant

    Plant was delivered within a reasonable amount of time and was undamaged due to excellent packing. Within a few weeks, several pitchers have formed and plant is continuing to thrive since received. Wonderful looking hybrid. Thank you, Sarracenia Northwest!

    Arrived in great shape, as usual. Not as many initial pitchers as the Tarnok shipped in the same order but pitchers are larger and the hoods are broader and ruffled, very showy.

    My plant arrived in amazing condition, thanks largely to smart packaging. The instructions were detailed and yet simple to follow, the customer service was superb, and all around, an extremely well run company and superb product. Have purchased in the past with similarly positive results. Thanks!
