We released this hybrid in 2021; Pinguicula rotundiflora x laueana "red." It has small, tight, lime-green rosettes. It often blooms in pairs; the lavender flowers point upwards and short 2” scapes.
We’ve previously sold this plant as rotundiflora x laueana “red” but decided to name this sweet little cultivar “Plum Fairy” as it’s been such a popular plant! The flowers are a soft plum color and look like something you’d find in a fairy garden.
