This renowned cultivar; Sarracenia x ‘Reptilian Rose’ is a beautiful and striking Sarracenia. This complex oreophila hybrid has tall, stunningly colorful pitchers. The pitchers grow in yellow and green and then a deep rosy red. The intricate venation on the throats is reminiscent of a lizard and the plants have copious amounts of sweet smelling nectar, almost a rosy scent. Large, undulating lids give the plant a picturesque feel. These are large divisions and a must have the Sarracenia collector.
