Sarracenia Reptilian Rose

(3 reviews)

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. Look for its best pitchers in early and mid summer. The plant was bred by Phil Faulisi and registered with the International Carnivorous Plant Society in 2009. Overall, this is a must-have for the serious Sarracenia collector.

2nd Season Divisions
After dividing our mother plants in spring, we grow the divisions for a year before releasing them. You get a more vigorous plant with a healthier root system when compared to a recent division.

All outdoor perennials experience seasonal changes at our nursery in Oregon.
January-March: Plant is dormant with no pitchers.
April: Spring growth will appear by the end of the month.
May: Fully developed pitchers will start to appear.
June: Full display of pitchers. This plant will look its best!
July-August: Plant will slow down when it’s hot. Some minor spotting.
September-October: Dormancy begins. Fewer pitchers. No new growth until spring.
November-December: Plant is dormant. Browned pitchers are cut off.
