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.
