Sarracenia purpurea x minor

(20 reviews) Write a Review
What an adorable plant - it's wearing a bonnet! This plant is a tough grower that can keep its leaves through most winters. Traps are short and nearly pure red, slightly curved, with an oversized lid shrouding a small mouth. In late season, traps can turn from strawberry red to a deep burgundy, which they will keep through cold weather. An excellent option for the grower interested in something tough yet ornamental for their carnivorous menagerie. Pitchers on an adult plant reach 6-8 inches.

    Who doesn't love a pitcher plant?? The vibrant red color is a show stopper. If you are looking for something with some pizazz, this plant is for you! It was packaged with great care and planting and care instructions were solid!

    This plant is beautiful. I did buy it because I had bought two other carnivores. The price was great. Love the pitchers and the color. Thank you. It grows fast. Love it.
