Sarracenia Leah Wilkerson

(5 reviews)

'Leah Wilkerson' was first introduced as a cultivar in 2005. The original plant was discovered in a bog on private property in Florida and was identified as a natural hybrid, Sarracenia flava x leucophylla. A small group of explorers had permission from the landowner, Leah Wilkerson, to extract a clump. They then named the plant in her honor. This hybrid is quite magnificent and stately. It has tall pitchers with dark red veins running through the hood. The opening of the pitcher is beautifully marked with a splash of dark red. Moreover, this plant is a vigorous grower and forms a large clump that can be easily divided.

    I got my Leah in flawlessly and a day early at that! It started producing pitchers quick and is about to pop a foot tall pitcher as I type this. I really appreciate SNW sending out quality plants and not dinky seedlings.

    I received my sarracenia in excellent condition. It has caught a lot of bugs. I love all of your plants. You and your crew are awesome.

    It came packed very well. Good sized division. The pitcher it was growing when I received it was deformed. The lid and lip never fully opened properly.
