Sarracenia Wilkerson's White Knight Pitcher Plant
Description: Sarracenia "Wilkersons White Knight" is a breathtaking hybrid that was found growing wild on Bud Wilkerson’s property in Walton county Florida. It was introduced into cultivation by Brooks Garcia. Compared to many other Sarracenia, it is very slow-growing and thus rare in cultivation. Most notably, it produces spectacular offspring and is prized by gardeners who breed Sarracenia. To our knowledge it was never registered as a cultivar.
It is known for its bulky, rigid pitchers and a red throat blotch against a pale yellow background. Given it’s Sarracenia flava and Sarracenia leucophylla parentage, it produces traps in both spring and fall. Expect its best show in the fall .
At a height of 24 inches, it isn’t as tall as some. Its 3 inch diameter mouths make it a monster though! 'Wilkerson's White Knight' is a stand-out addition for any bog garden or greenhouse.
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.
