Sarracenia Adrian Slack pitcher plant
Description: Sarracenia ‘Adrian Slack’ is a stunning hybrid that was found growing wild in Milton Florida by Bob Hanrahan.
Sarracenia ‘Adrian Slack’ is arguably one of the most popular and best looking pitcher plants available. It is named after a legend in early Sarracenia hybridization, Adrian Slack. This plant has a statuesque appearance, taking its shape from its Sarracenia flava heritage and color from its Leucophylla side. The lid is heavily veined with deep red against a mostly white background, supported by a thin spotted column. The well-shaped mouth is red to pink. Strong veining with white areoles extends down the tube, transitioning to green.
Sarracenia ‘Adrian Slack’ produces its largest pitchers in the spring, measuring 2 feet tall with a 2.5 wide mouth. Fall leaves are impressive but slightly smaller. This plant is incredible in all aspects and has given rise to many hybrids in cultivation today. Whether as a specimen or as a breeder S. ‘Adrian Slack’ is in a league of its own.
Pitcher plant care: Plant in full sun to part shade outdoors. Use peat moss 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.
