Sarracenia leucophylla “red” x minor ‘Giant’ Potted

$ 19.99 $ 24.99

When Peter originally did this cross in the 1990’s many famous plants were selected and named. Most of the plants ended up being giant, dark red excellens. One such plant was named ‘Prometheus’ by the famed Jerry Addington and has been used extensively in his breeding program. Another famous plant to come out of this cross is ‘Deep Throat’. Recently Damon realized that we were still growing the exact same parents that Peter used in this cross! So for the first time in 30 years, we have redone it! Since this is a proven winner, you cannot go wrong with this plant; imagine what new cultivars exist!?

Please note that Sarracenia are temperate plants that go dormant in winter, dying back to the rhizome in the soil and growing again in spring. Some of the pitchers on different species/hybrids can start to die back in Fall. They are at the height of growth in Summer and may be smaller than the photos in the listing if purchased at a different time of year. Plant sizing is variable depending on time of year, parentage, and individual genetics between seeds.

Care Instructions

Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water, they prefer deep saucers of water or undrained containers in order to recreate their very water logged conditions
Temperature: 15 degrees - 100 degrees, needs protection from colder winters and always keep very wet when hot
Dormancy: All Sarracenia require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the pitchers will turn brown and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; over winter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.

Perfect gift

This was a father's day gift for the man that has everything. His excitement made my day. "Sara" was packaged professionally for the cross country trip and now I'll be making a purchase for myself. Thank you!


It was my first Sarracenia I've ever bought, and I love it!

Wonderful little plant, vigorously growing strait out of the box.

Beautiful plant. I have placed orders with California Carnivores several times over the years and I’m never disappointed. You guys are truly masters at your craft.


I got the medium size and it definitely appears bigger than the small on the photo. It was great and healthy with 4 pitchers. They are a little skinnier than expected.
