Sarracenia Judith Hindle
Bred in England in 1985, this plant quickly became a coveted classic. It has been widely regarded as one of the finest Sarracenia ever created for its uniform shape, moderate height, colorful pitchers, and steady growth throughout the growing season. The traps are stunning. Young leaves are green streaked with red and heavily speckled with white around the top. The pitchers quickly convert to the deepest berry-red, leaving the top of the ruffled lid dotted with pink and white while the rest of the trap assumes darker complexions. Leaves are of medium height and growth is compact and uniform. Older plants are somewhat more robust, but are otherwise identical to younger ones. Its ease of growth and reliable nature makes Judith Hindle a prize in any collection.

Very good plants and best packing for shipping in this market
Plant arrived very healthy and well packaged. It is thriving with new growth. Looking forward to this being a beautiful specimen.
My plant arrived in perfect condition you have a new customer
First time having carnivorous plants. All the plants were very well packaged, good condition and all the plants have survived and are thriving. Im in Miami so the sun is good and weather works perfectly. My recommendation is go for the bigger plant sizes as they offer more robust growth, speeds up the process of growing. Great new addition to my garden and will be adding many more as I build out my pond. Thank you SNWEST!!!
The spring pitchers were a little weird very S shaped ; plant is putting on a new pitcher cant complain. *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** Yes, that can sometimes happen with new growth when the weather fluctuates wildly in spring, hot one day and cold the next. Some of the mid and late season plants are susceptible to it. When the weather stabilizes, pitchers develop normally. Feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions.
Judith Hindle arrived healthy and exceptionally packaged
I got this plant about a month ago and planted it. The weather turned bad and I was worried but recently it has been growing and is now double it’s size! I was able to keep it in its moist packaging in the beginning until the weather warmed up as it was packaged very well.
The plant arrived quickly, without any damage, and with a few small pitchers from the beginning of the growing season. I put it outside in a sunny spot and kept the soil moist and within a week or two the first large pitcher came up. A couple weeks later, it has a second pitcher with a third on the way. They look beautiful and are very healthy. Definitely would recommend.
Growing in leaps and bounds!
Judith Hindle Sarracenia arrived perfectly packaged. I've purchased carnivorous plants from other online seller, but Sarracenia Northwest takes the cake! The way they package their plant babies not only protects them from all the bumps from shipping, but they make it so easy to safely untape them from the packaging. And LOVE the way they color code which plants are Hardy Perrenials and Tropicals and also the type of plant they are on durable rub-free plastic tabs. I've had them for a month now and the plastic tabs and plastic pots they came in still look like new. Pots are a higher quality than what you receive in the big box stores. They still look brand new, scratch and dent-free after a month of being outside. Wok be purchasing my carnivorous plants from Sarracenia Northwest from now on. Thank you so for your hardwork and wonderful Customer Service!
