Sarracenia rubra wherryi

(13 reviews) Write a Review
Sarracenia rubra wherryi has a thin layer of fuzz on the upper portions of the red-orange foliage, along with a rounded lid and a striking yellow-green lip. On large plants, multitudes of nodding red flowers in mid to late spring make this one show-stopping - they smell like miniature roses! This is a late season plant, which means it produces its most robust traps in late summer, right after when the heat peaks.  While most other forms retain some leaves in winter, this one will drop them completely.

    Already made a review on this plant a while back, It is a real beauty like the rest of SNW plants. At their prices, all the plants are GREAT DEALS... when I compare the plants and prices to other dealers that I dealt with in the past before I found SNW.
