Plant = Healthy. Packaging = Exceptional.
We named this plant after our first nursery dog, Hank, who was a loving gentle giant. Like its namesake, this plant is an unconfirmed hybrid, though we highly suspect that it's a cross of Sarracenia flava atropurpurea and Sarracenia leucophylla. The plant is red, big, and a hefty eater. It loves to bask in the sun, sit in water, and enjoy attention from customers. Its best growth occurs in spring and early to mid summer.
Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.

Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).

These plants came in vibrant and healthy and has had the most growth of all my sarracenias, and is doing really well in my garden.
So happy with my Sarracenia x Hank! It was meticulously packaged and had several growth points. Will be back for more plants!
I have bought other plants online (carnivores and not) and this one arrived in great condition, very well packaged and protected. It has already started producing nice size pitchers. Very happy with this purchase!
It came to my home in excellent condition. and is doing well keep up the great work.
Very nice. Love the color.
I love this hybrid! I bought one in the summer of 2018 and now that spring 2019 has come around it has absolutely exploded out of dormancy and is further along than any of my other pitchers. The pitchers are already 15" tall and the color is really unique. If you're looking for a big, impressive plant I would definitely recommend putting some time into this one.
Plant arrived healthy and well-packed. Growth is starting to take off!
