Description: Sarracenia flava "Supermax" is a stunning clone of the copper top pitcher plant. Growing to gargantuan proportions, spring leaves can top 36 inches with lids over 5 inches in diameter. Its vein-less leaves are copper-hued, maturing to chartreuse. For the serious gardener looking for pitcher plants for sale with wild North Carolina genetics, this is it! Supermax also has tremendous potential for interesting Sarracenia flava crosses. This is a must-have for serious pitcher plant gardeners!
When our nursery was established, we purchased several groups of trumpet pitcher plant seedlings from small nurseries near the coast of North Carolina. Choice seedlings were given temporary names and evaluated for vigor, size and beauty. S. "Supermax" was distributed as Sarracenia flava "jl407" during the evaluation process. Flytrap King nursery will likely register this outstanding plant.
Pitcher Plant Care: Plant in full sun to part shade outdoors. Use peat moss and perlite in a extremely large planter and keep it wet. This is a very large-growing plant so planting it out in a bog garden is ideal. Use a mixture of peat moss and sand in your bog garden. It loses its leaves in the winter. Cold hardy to 20F in a pot and 0F in the ground.Orders placed from the following states will ship Bare Root: AZ, CA, HI, ID, MT, NV, OR, UT, WA
