Its a tubby, colorful, medium height pitcher plant with character. It was acquired by Flytrap King Nursery from the estate of David Crump, and has proven to be an excellent breeder for us.

Its thick red leaves are reminiscent of Sarracenia Rosea. In the pitcher plant garden it would be fantastic to grow this next to Sarracenia leucophylla x rubra ssp. gulfensis for a stunning contrast in color and girth.
Pitcher Plant Care: Plant in full sun to part shade outdoors. Use peat moss and perlite in a very large planter and keep it wet. In a bog garden, use a mixture of peat moss and sand. 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
