Sarracenia x 'Lamentations' (L-DIV) Deluxe Potted
Sarracenia x 'Lamentations' is one of Peter's famous hybrids. While it's parentage is of unknown origin, it is still an exceptional plant. The narrow, olive green pitchers are heavily veined with dark red nerves. When grown in full sun the upper two third of each pitchers, including the lid, turn entirely reddish-maroon with especially dark veins. The back of the pitcher throat and the underside of the lid can turn dark purple-burgundy. This cultivar is especially notable for the upper inclination of the lid which is wider ad linger than the mouth opening. The pitchers are also notably long lasting into the winter dormant season. Peter named this plant 'Lamentations' as the cluster of pitchers, with their upturned lids, can metaphorically appear to be crying towards heaven. This is definitely a must for the serious Sarrracenia collector.
