Description

A very unusual Adrian Slack hybrid. Pitchers are white, veined with red, with patterning similar to S leucophylla. They have lovely beaked ‘Cobra-like’ hoods. Lovely wine red flowers are borne in spring. A good hardy hybrid. Like all Sarracenias they need to be kept in soft water in acidic nutrient-less soil for good growth.

Efficient fly & wasp catchers they grow in full sun in moist or wet acidic nutrient-less soils. Good as container plants – stand in rain water spring to autumn, keep just damp in winter. Needs a cold winter dormancy. Excellent plants for fly catching on a sunny window sill.

Plants may be sent bare rooted. see details on potting here
