Sarracenia Reptilian Rose
Reptilian Rose is one of those rare Sarracenia that changes colors with the seasons. In early spring, its pitchers are pink. As summer progresses, they transform into deep red. The plant, however, is best known for its pouty lip and fanciful hood. As a hybrid from Phil Faulisi, this is a must-have for the serious Sarracenia collector. The plant produces its best pitchers in early and mid summer.
