Sarracenia x The Minor Hybrid

(3 reviews) Write a Review
Yes, the name of this plant is "The Minor Hybrid." Back in the early 2000s, we acquired a bunch of random seed-grown plants produced by Larry Mellichamp, professor of botany at University of North Carolina in Charlotte. This plant caught our attention, but we didn't know what to call it and simply referred to it as "the minor hybrid" because it has features that have strong Sarracenia minor parentage. When we built enough of inventory through rhizome division, we had to give the plant a name. As a joke, we decided to continue calling it "The Minor Hybrid." The name stuck ever since. This plant appreciates very warm, sunny summers and a long growing season. A mature plant will be about 12 inches tall.
