This is a true late-season grower. It produces it's best pitchers towards the end of September and into October. When backlit with the setting sun in early autumn, the plant seems to glow. The lower portion of the pitchers are red, while the upper portion features large white specks. Colors intensify as the night gets colder. Don't worry about frost. This plant will hold its pitchers into December, even after a series of frost and light snow. On a mature plant, pitchers are typically 12-16 inches tall.
