We acquired this plant from Lois Ochs, a former employee at California Carnivores. She bred this plant (Sarracenia leucophylla x purpurea) and named it in homage to Peter D'Amato. The plant is quite unusual. When the pitchers first open up, they're almost white. Over time, they transform into a lovely shade of red. It's a remarkable phenomena to watch! The plant appreciates a long, sunny growing season.
