Sarracenia x 'Leah Wilkerson' Potted

$ 79.99
Size: Large

The renowned cultivar, Sarracenia x ‘Leah Wilkerson,’ is a x moorei that was collected in a bog in Florida with the owners' permission (and was subsequently named for the land owner!) This spectacular moorei truly highlights the best of both parents. Tall, heavily veined, and with a glowing white lid ringed in bright pinkish-red, the best part may be the deep red blotch on the throat! A must-have for every collector or breeder!

These are large divisions!

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.

The sarracenia x Leah Wilkerson is awesome only 2weeks from dormant to 13inches tall and it’s no where near ready to open very vigorous ,it must love my small greenhouse . Pink things are pretty too. Every thing I have purchased from you guys over the past month seems very healthy and vigorous, even the ones I bought last year I have a beautiful royal ruby from last year. Oh and the sun dew has given me one thousand babies (at least it looks like it,) I never expected all my seeds would germinate. Wow !!!!! Thanks to all at cal. Carnivores for their hard work! Love you all
