Sarracenia x Red Minor

(5 reviews) Write a Review
When this plant first popped up in our nursery, we dubbed it Red Minor, referring to its appearance of the species, Sarracenia minor. Despite its name, it's definitely a hybrid, S. minor x (purpurea x psittacina). Its pitchers stand straight and display a deep red color with white speckles on its back. It grows very slowly and produces only a handful of pitchers each season, so you'll need a healthy dose of patience. The plant enjoys warm muggy summers with an extended growing season. Pitchers on a mature plant are 8-12 inches.

    One of the Minor brothers, this of intense red, while leucophylla x has deep reddish brown & in contrast simply minor is somewhat plain. Having all three in a group is wonderful for comparison. Red arrived in perfect health and sits in water next to his brothers. Love it!
