Sarracenia leucophylla, Juju

(No reviews yet)

This form of S. leucophylla has an extraordinarily pouty lips, more so than other forms. We're not sure how we acquired it, but we think it grew from an open-pollinated seed in our collection since that's how we get much of our plants. A fellow grower drooled over this plant and asked Jacob what he was going to call it. He jokingly said, "Juju Lips." That was a term he used in Hawaii as a kid for someone with large lips because those lips are magic! Who wouldn't want to be kissed by large, magic lips? But, we dropped the "lips" and just call it "Juju" because of the qualities it imparts when bred with other plants. As with other forms of S. leucophylla, this plant produces its largest and most pronounced pouty lips in late summer.
