If you're a fan of Godzilla, you'll appreciate the name of this hybrid (Godzilla's son). Compared to other Sarracenia hybrids with S. oreophila, this one 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.

    This is one of the most attractive plants in my pitcher plant collection. It arrived in excellent condition and is thriving. I'm tempted to replace all of the pitcher plants in my container bog garden with this one.
