Description: Sarracenia'Biggie Shorty' pitcher plant is a hybrid of Sarracenia purpurea x leucophylla and leucophylla pitcher plants. It has a huge late summer show of tubby, robust pitchers that have spectacular color.
Its leaves are medium-height and very sturdy. It is a great companion to Sarracenia flava var. rugelii, the trumpet pitcher plant because of its contrasting color and height and the fact that it makes its best leaves in late summer. This hybrid looks great through most of the winter as well!
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.
