One of our all-time favorites, tiny little Pinguicula ehlersiae, stays dainty and petite, blushing pink under intense light. The flowers extend on long stems from the tiny rosettes like a magic trick.
Of all the ehlersiae we grow at the nursery, this is everyone’s favorite! It was given to us by our former employee Luke Basulto and we have named it for his new baby girl, Isabelle. What makes it our favorite are the dark pink, pointed leaves, with rolled, lighter margins that literally make them look like jelly bean mandalas. The flowers are a strong pink with a white throat
Only limited numbers available this year.
