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 gradually appear.
June-August: Full display of pitchers.
September: Plant produces its best pitchers of the season.
October: Dormancy begins. Fewer pitchers. No new growth until spring.
November-December: Plant is dormant. Browned pitchers are cut off.

    Three Purchases

    Posted by Mark Bauer on May 9, 2020

    Without knowing exact dates, I purchased three plants within the past few weeks: Extreme Green, Ruby Throat and "Dark." Extreme came with a small flower scape which grew rapidly and within 4 weeks I had 3 developing pitchers (very satisfying). Ruby and Dark came in a smaller package. Their diminutive size at first was disappointing (I get so excited with the big plants), but, because I know SNW produces and sends great plants, quality, I had no concerns (they are both doing well and developing). I am very happy with these three, which will add color and diversity to the mix of plants that I have. Very satisfied. Thanks to Jeff and Jacob.

    Changing of The Colors

    Posted by Ramon L. Nelson on March 6, 2016

    This plant is very interesting in how it will change colors as the seasons continues. The pitchers start with green color... then change to yellow... and the they turn red. Like having several plants all in one and for the price of only one plant.
