Sarracenia x Sweet Excellence

(22 reviews) Write a Review
"Sweet Excellence" bears masses of eye-catching foliage on rapidly-dividing growth points. We enjoy this trait of density because it rewards the grower with size, vigor, and new dimensions to the plant each season. The dense masses of leaves are primarily maroon-purple in the upper portions, upright, and slightly cowled at the lid. White speckling throughout the upper portions gets exceptionally conspicuous on older plants. On late-season leaves, the red hues exaggerate to a spectacular black-purple, contrasting fabulously with the white splotching. Copious nectar about the triangular mouth is exuded in such quantity that it can crystallize into little sugary beads! Pitchers on adult plants often reach 12 inches. Its best growth occurs in mid to late summer.

    I had to keep them in plastic for a couple days after receiving them, but immediately put them outside with the correct water and they are currently blooming with new sprouts!
