Sarracenia Lorax

(4 reviews)

This plant has lots of white spots throughout the upper parts of the pitcher. They appear on the front beneath the lip and wrap around to the back. The hood features a graceful pattern of red viens and frilled edges. A mature plant will produce a massive rhizome that can be easily divided. Pitchers also last throughout winter.

The plant was named after a beloved friend, Margaret Eng. She worked for the Outdoor School in Portland, Oregon and was a strong advocate of bringing the natural sciences to school children. Hundreds of kids got to know her as "Lorax." We were fortunate to have known a gentle, yet passionate, soul, so we named this plant after her Outdoor School nickname. (This plant was originally released as "Margaret Eng.")

2nd Season Divisions
After dividing our mother plants in spring, we grow the divisions for a year before releasing them. You get a more vigorous plant with a healthier root system when compared to a recent division.

All outdoor perennials experience seasonal changes at our nursery in Oregon.
January-March: Plant is dormant with no pitchers.
April: Spring growth will appear by the end of the month.
May: Fully developed pitchers will gradually appear.
June-August: Full display of pitchers.
September: Plant produces its best pitchers of the season.
October: Dormancy begins. Fewer pitchers. No new growth until spring.
November-December: Plant is dormant. Browned pitchers are cut off.
