Sarracenia Royal Ruby

(3 reviews)

Royal Ruby has been around since 1992, but it was registered with the International Carnivorous Plant Society as a cultivar in 2008. While it is one of many natural hybrids of Sarracenia flava and S. leucophylla, this plant is unlike the others. It has regal red pitchers; its hood is frilled with fuschia mottling. The pitcher also features a prominent spout. When fully mature, pitchers will often reach 30 inches. In mild climates, such as at our nursery in Oregon, pitchers typically reach 24-28 inches. The plant produces its best looking pitchers in mid and late summer. Full sun is required to maintain its rich red colors.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 30 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

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.
