In the spring, new pitchers emerge colored bright red. The intense red color saturates the entire exterior of the leaf. In striking contrast, the interior is bright yellow, maturing to red with vertical venation. Phyllodia are produced in fall. It is by far, the most attractive Sarracenia flava in cultivation.
Sarracenia 'Waccamaw' typically produces 3 pitchers per growth point and readily forms a clump. It grows to 24 inches tall. A mature clump of this dramatic cultivar is an impressive sight. It is an absolute must for any serious collector.
S. flava var. cuprea is an exemplary example of the copper top trumpet pitcher plant. We obtained this clone from a gardener who stated that it originally came from Meadowview Biological Research Station.
24" pitchers emerge in the spring with a luscious orange-bronze coloration, maturing to burgundy in the summer. Fewer, thinner pitchers emerge late season.
The seedlings from this crossing will yield some amazing looking flavas, while you will get a lot of reds and copper colored ones, you may also get some other variations of flava as well due to the fact that atropurpurea will often produce other forms of this species when bred to other flavas, so expect some little surprises!
