Sarracenia Pitcher Plant 'Scarlet Belle' 12cm Pot
Item number PC7A7
Sarracenia Pitcher Plant 'Scarlet Belle' 12cm PotA Sarracenia hybrid, 'Scarlet Belle' is a cross between the white top pitcher (Sarracenia leucophylla) and the parrot pitcher (Sarracenia psittacina). The small, beautifully hooded pitchers grow in a low rosette to around 10-20cm (4-8in) and use a lobster pot method to trap prey. A robust plant, it matures and spreads quite quickly with its main growth in the spring and late summer. Sarracenia 'Scarlet Belle' also keeps its foliage much longer into dormancy than many other varieties of Sarracenia and has a very high tolerance to cold - winter hardy to around -12°C. The colour of 'Scarlet Belle' is best under full sun, although the plant tolerates lower light and will still develop nice colour. Plants do need 6 or more hours of direct sunlight however to thrive. Supplied as a large established plant in a 9cm pot, much bigger than plants offered for sale elsewhere, ready to give you an instant pest clearing service! Secret of success - always rain water, never tap water!
