Sarracenia

These are the American Pitcher Plants, temperate carnivores with brightly colored trumpet-shaped trapping leaves. Great for locations with full sun and lovers of moisture, these plants do well in bog gardens or outdoor patio collections. The majority of plants available here are grown outdoors most of the year, fully acclimated to very strong sun and low humidity.

PLANTS ARE CURRENTLY DORMANT AND WILL ARRIVE WITHOUT ACTIVE GROWTH
S. oreophila x flava Don's Red Tube Clon

S. oreophila x flava rubricorpora "Don's Red Tube," Clone C -$50

A giant of a plant, with an extremely vigorous growth habit and pitchers that even in my climate regularly exceed 2 feet in height. Fully mature pitchers often sport exaggerated spout-shaped lips, and color up in solid brick red in the pitchers, bright yellow with red veins in the lid (often flushing with red as they mature). Plants often send up their best crop of pitchers early in the year, but can also produce summer and fall flushes as well.

Available division is large, fully mature, with multiple growth points.

S. flava maxima -$75

Two large, multi-growth point divisions available of one of my largest flava; this division has pitchers already pushing 20" tall, and can get even bigger, especially even wider. Pitchers never produce veins of any sort here, just pure bright glowing green. This is likely a Carolina form.

S. oreophila x Blood Moon B.jpg

S. oreophila x "Blood Moon" HC Clone B -$45

A stocky, slightly slower growing but spectacular plant when it hits its stride. Pitchers average around 20 inches tall for me, with a slight curve in their profile and a wide, similarly elgant curvy lid that dips forward over the mouth. Pitcher tubes are solid deep crimson, the lids veines with the same crimson within a patchwork of lime green and white.

Available plants are large single to multi-growth point divisions.

S. x moorei red x leucophylla HCW A.jpg

S. x moorei "red" x leucophylla 'HCW -HC A -$50

The largest white-top style plant currently in my collection, this clone looks like a pure leucophylla with a chunky build, pitchers up to 25 inches tall in my dry conditions often with nearly the full upper third sporting greenish to red veins through white areoles, and brilliantly cherry red blooms in spring.

Available divisions are flowering sized, most multi-growth point;one smaller "mini" division available for $20.

S. oreophila x flava Don's Red Tube Clone B.jpg

S. oreophila x flava rubricorpora "Don's Red Tube" HC B -$35

While it has been the shortest of my 3 remaining clones of this cross, this particular plant has also been the most elegantly shaped, and darkest of the three. Pitchers reach an average of 15 inches in my climate (with the potential to possibly get much larger), with a slender build and very flava-esque appearance, narrow neck column and shapely lid. Like the other clones, pitchers open with crimson tubes and red-veined yellow lids and interiors, but over time the entire trap may age to a deep, bloody rust red color. Flowers are not dwarfed, massive yellow structures with flava's characteristic feline odor.

Available divisions are flowering sized, one to three growth points on average.

S. 'Leah Wilkerson' OP.jpg

S. 'Leah Wilkerson' OP -$20

This plant has behaved rather dwarfishly compared to its known parent, but could have the potential for getting quite a bit bigger. Pitchers reach between 10-14 inches tall, with a slender profile and mildly frilly lid, and sport deep purple veins and a maroon flush and purple lid that over time age to deeper hues overall. Flowers start out a flaming bicolor red and yellow, sometimes aging to solid red.

Available divisions are semi-mature to flowering sized.

S. Adrian Slack Imposter x 'Leah Wilkerson' Clone A.jpg

S. "Adrian Slack Imposter" x 'Leah Wilkerson' HC A -$25

A stately x moorei with pitchers that can reach 20 inches tall, and opens with pink blushes and darker red veins between faint white areoles, aging to green with pinstripe veins and broader white sections. It likes to make numerous smaller growth buds, resulting a fairly densely populated container. Flowers are pinkish in hue.

Available divisions are nearly mature or mature.

S. flava Cinnamon Tube x self Clone A.jpg

S. flava "Cinnamon Tube" x self HC A -$30

This plant presents much like a near-perfect "var. rugellii" with pitchers nearly 20 inches tall (possibly more once vegetatively mature), very slender and elegant with a narrow neck column and flat lid, that are nearly solid glowing yellow-green save for the crimson throat blotch and a handful of veins that just barely eke out of that blotch. Flowers are classic flava yellow with all the feline odor they're famous for.

Available division is flowering or near-flowering size, one smaller one also available for $18.

S. oreophila x Blood Moon A.jpg

S. oreophila x "Blood Moon" HC A -$50

This plant is a stunner particularly wiht the fall flush of pitchers; traps can exceed 18 inches tall (likely larger in more humid areas than mine) with solid bright red tubes, but it's the lids that truly stand out. This thing will make huge lids, over 5 inches in length and nearly as wide, slightly ruffled and bright lemon yellow with red pinstripe veins. 

Available divisons are large, flowering sized.

S. 'Doreen's Colossus' x 'Tapestry'.jpg

S. 'Doreen's Colossus' x 'Tapestry' -$40

This is a hybrid that will surprise you with stunners. Spring pitchers frequently aren't much to look at, fairly elegantly shaped but mostly green with a handful of areoles and red veins, but a good sunny spot will result in a fall flush of pitchers that can be 18+ inches tall, with an elegantly spouted lip and elongated, ruffled lid, and the green tube is topped with brilliant white windows and the lid almost solid white save for the red and green veins that, in line with the body of the pitcher, frequently age and pale out to lime and yellow colors making it a brilliant trap that stands out at a distance.

Available divisions are large, flowering sized.

S. 'Red Beret'.jpg

S. 'Red Beret' -$30

A cultivar I registered several years ago, this plant is I suspect (oreophila x alata) x alata, and grows much like a red-lidded alata on steroids. Pitchers can grow to 16 plus inches tall (probably taller in more humid areas), and are sturdy in build with a nearly flawless arrowhead-shaped lid that curves sharply into the neck. Exterior color is pure green, occasionally with hints of the dense reticulated network of red veins inside shining through, and as the pitcher ages it develops a glowing crimson shade under the lid that ends in a sharp line where it meets the neck, save for one strip that extends down the middle of the throat.

Available divisions are flowering sized or nearly so.

S. 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Alucard' Prince of Darkness B.jpg

S. 'Leah Wilkerson' x 'Alucard' "Prince of Darkness" HC B -$55

A bit of a shy bloomer but a vigorous grower, this cross between two BIG famous cultivars shows promise of being able to reach similar stature, nearly two feet tall in my dry air with a mildly ruffled lid and thick, somewhat pouty and occasionally kinked peristome. Pitchers tend to be nearly solid plum-purple top to bottom with some lighter areoles showing through in the lid and upper tube. Flowers are on the other hand a bright peachy and yellow mix.

One small division available.

S. (x swaniana x 'Scarlet Belle') x oreophila.jpg

S. (x swaniana x 'Scarlet Belle') x oreophila -$15

A compact and vigorous plant that I liken to a colony of little green hooded monks in appearance. Pitchers never get over 8 inches, if that, squat and almost bulbous with a slightly ruffled hood arching sharply over the mouth; pitchers are nearly straight green, with a network of red veins on the inside that bleeds into the outer lid and pink lip, and just a handful of white areoles on the back of the pitcher. A great plant for smaller spaces or beginner growers.

Available divisions are near-flowering or actively flowering sized.

S. 'Red Sumatra' OP.jpg

S. 'Red Sumatra' OP -$25

While not quite as flashy as its known parent cultivar, this plant has some real size to it and makes beefy pitchers, up to 20 inches tall with a thick upper section and rolling lip under an arrowhead-shaped to rounded lid. Coloration takes after its parent, developing bright vermillion sometimes with deeper veins, and the lip and throat frequently deepen to an unreal hot crimson color. Flowers are a rosy pinkish color.

Available division is flowering sized and developing buds.

S. 'Waccamaw' -$175

A cultivar that hardly needs introduction, but just in case: this is widely considered one of the best all-red Carolina flava out there, with fair vigor, semi-dwarfish pitchers frequently topping out at around 15-18 inches tall, and when established and in proper light the traps are solid bright red top to bottom right from the start with a yellow interior that may or may not eventually flush the same red as the exterior over time. Flowers are fairly short but large just like the species standard, and brilliant yellow with that infamous feline odiferous aroma.

Available plant is a medium-large division with 3 newly developed growth points; these will develop rapidly in good light and soil but I would not expect full-sized pitchers in the first year.
