Sarracenia oreophila “Sand Mountain, Unusual Form” Potted

$ 79.99
Size: Large

Sarracenia oreophila is nearly extinct in the wild.  It looks similar to Sarracenia flava, producing most of its pitchers in spring and going dormant in late summer.  Pitchers are tall and stately, usually green.

This is the extraordinarily rare and special Sand Mountain clone that we’ve grown for over 30 years. Peter received this from Don Schnell originally.

This is an unusual clone, tall, bright green and narrow mouthed! We’ve grown this plant for decades and always love watching its electric green pitchers emerge in early spring, always delighted by the size and color of the pitchers! We’ve divided up our botanical collection which are limited, extremely rare large divisions.

We’ve previously sold this as “Little River” as we believed it to be this form but have since changed it to “Unusual Form” as it has come to our attention that this plant is from another site on Sand Mountain that needs to remain a secret. Regardless of whether it’s from the Little River, it’s a fantastic and highly sought-after rare plant! 

California Carnivores can ship this plant outside of California as per Permit Number ESPER0002076
