Description: As with all trumpet pitchers, Sarracenia flava var. atropurpurea produces its largest pitchers in spring. Newly emerging leaves are often red with yellow undertones, maturing to solid red. Leaves are sturdy and strong, growing to 2 feet or more with 4 inch lids depending on clone. Red phyllodia are produced in summer and fall.
These plants are seed grown and each one is unique and special.
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.
