Sarracenia x readii, Green

(6 reviews) Write a Review
This plant is a simple hybrid of the exceedingly rare all green Sarracenia leucophylla forma viridescens and the exceedingly rare all green Sarracenia rubra ssp. jonesii f. viridescens. This plant lacks red pigment, so leaves and flowers are green and white. Pitchers are tall with a prominent, ruffled lid and a gracefully spouted mouth. Look for its best pitchers of the season in late summer.

    Excellent doing business with SN. I received my plants in great shape, well secured in the package safe and sound, with full tracking details. The plants are nicely potted and very health, well grown plants. They are now basking in the CA sunshine. I look forward to the full summer display of these interesting plants. Thank you PS, I love the youtube videos.

    A little slow coming out of dormancy. Has 2 deformed leaves. But overall looks healthy and should take off this month.
