Sarracenia Northern Cortii x Hummer's Okee Classic (SG)
Northern Cortii is Sarracenia purpurea purpurea x psittacina; Hummer’s Okee Classic is a registered cultivar of S. alabamensis x minor, Okee Giant. The cross of these two plants produced seedlings that are predominantly low-lying and curved, very much like Northern Cortii, but the pitchers are elongated with a triangular hood, very much like Hummer’s Okee Classic. Some plants have hints of yellow in their hood, an influence by S. alabamensis. With its complex parentage, this is one plant that will show different features when it matures.
Appearance will differ from plant to plant. Selection is done randomly. Last two photos show the parent plants.

Was small when it arrived, but now that summer has arrived its been pushing out new leaves like crazy. Plant arrived in perfect shape. Packaging is impeccable as always. Never have a doubt when I order from SNW. Have bought carnivorous plants from other companies and it never comes close to the quality of plants from SNW. Highly recommend SNW!!
The plant is simply beautiful. Short and colorful pitchers with a interesting pitcher hood. Highly recommended
