Pinguicula laueana is much beloved for its lush pink rosettes and neon colored flowers. Pinguicula heterophylla is not as well known but has beautiful, upright, narrow leaves that almost look like a threadleaf sundew. This hybrid is so dewy it almost looks like a sundew butterwort hybrid. The flowers are furry throated, purple edged petals fading to white in the center. We are really excited about this hybrid! So much so that we’ve decided to name it!
While there are several clones with some floral variation, we call them all “Naiad”. The dewy, sea star shape of this Ping make us think of the Ancient Greek water nymphs.
