Sarracenia 'Triple Rarity'

Received: 14 December 2000

This plant’s peculiar hybrid ancestry is Sarracenia (oreophila x jonesii) x alabamensis. The pitcher leaves are 30-40 cm (12-16 inches) tall, and are erect. The leaves are mostly green in overall tone, and have light green venation on the outer surface of the pitchers. The venation is more prominent on the inner pitcher surface, especially near the pitcher opening. The pitcher lid is held close over the pitcher opening, and is weakly undulate. The best leaf development is in the late summer and fall. The flower petals are mostly bright crimson, but in areas can be washed with cream color.

In order to maintain the character of this cultivar, it should be propagated vegetatively.

I developed this cultivar in October 1993. I coined the name October 2000. The cultivar name notes that the three parental plants are very rare in the wild.
