Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa burkii x ( x ‘Ember’ ) Potted

$ 14.99

‘Ember’ is a very cool and rare cultivar created by Jerry Addington. It has psittacina buried deep inside this cross and so it makes lots and lots of dark red pitchers that curve inward towards the center but are also reliably open and unlike any other Sarracenia. Here Damon has crossed it back with purpurea to further open the pitchers and shorten them like little pipes.

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.
