Description: Sarracenia ‘Dragon Queen’ is the result of hybridization work done by Wes Buckner in 2014.   It came to us in a group of young seedlings labeled S. “Blood Moon” x ‘Kilimanjaro’.  S. “Blood Moon” is the informal name for the offspring of S. flava var. rubricorpora and S. “Wilkerson’s Red Rocket”.

The exceptional qualities of this flamboyant plant were immediately apparent.  The large, colorful S. x moorei genetics from "Blood Moon" are combined with the abnormally fast, clumping growth habit of S. 'Kilimajaro'.   In the spring the plant produces an abundance of sturdy, erect 28-inch-tall oxide red leaves.  The two-tone lids are pastel yellow infused with dramatic oxide red venation.  The fall crop of leaves is equally as profuse and infused with pink.  The pastel yellow areas on the lid are smaller in the fall. 

We have 3 available in winter 2022 and 3 in summer 2022.  We hope to have about 12 available at a reduced price in 2023. 

Don't forget to go home with some seeds of a very similar cross as well!

Care:  Plant in full sun to part shade outdoors. Use peat moss and perlite in a very large planter and keep it wet.  It loses its leaves in the winter. Cold hardy to 20F in a pot and 0F in the ground.
