Sarracenia oreophila always adds an amazing vigor to any hybrid! This combined with the beautiful color and veining of Sarracenia flava make for a lovely plant. These pitchers have wide open mouths with lightly undulating lids and delicate veining.
'Leah Wilkerson' is a renowned cultivar and is a Sarracenia x moorei that was collected in a bog in Florida with the owners permission. It was named for the land owner. There are lots of mooreis in the trade now but this is definitely a choice selection that truly highlights the best of both parents. The pitchers are white topped with a striking red throat.
This hybrid should get huge! Check out the final two photos to see the parents used in this cross.
Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water, they prefer deep saucers of water or undrained containers in order to recreate their very water logged conditions
Temperature: 15 degrees - 100 degrees, needs protection from colder winters and always keep very wet when hot
Dormancy: All Sarracenia require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the pitchers will turn brown and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; over winter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.
