Temperate Butterworts (Pinguicula)

Pinguicula macrocerasTemperate Butterworts (Pinguicula) survive long, cold winters by dying down to small, cone shaped hibernacula.  They start vigorously growing in Spring and often produce flat, starfish like rosettes.  Their flowers are delicate, funnel shaped and range from bright purple to luminescent white.

They often grow in boggy moors, gravelly cliffs and mossy grottos.  The habitats that temperate Pinguicula grow in are sunny but they are shaded by grasses and ferns.

We are currently working on production of these wonderful plants but we do not have any ready to ship at this time.  If you would like to be added to our waiting list please email us.  But, please be aware that we do not expect to have them available for quite some time.
