Ease to Grow: Easy
Dormancy: Suggested
Native Range: Wet Pocosins of the Gulf Coast from Georgia to the Mississippi Delta
Zones: 7-9 (6-10)

Sarracenia leucophylla "Hot Pink" is a very tall Leucophylla with dark purple red veins. The dark red coloration and veins dominate the upper portions of the tubes which attract many flying insects, particularly wasps. As with Sarracenia leucophylla, it shows a preference for very wet, even water-logged areas. It can easily form colonies with each plant having 8 to 12 pitchers. It is very showy in the Spring, but especially in the Fall when other pitcher plants dwindle. Trumpets tolerate light frost, but do not overwinter. The large showy flowers are bright crimson to maroon and mildly fragrant. They often bend upward after pollination. They generally bloom from March to April before the pitchers fully develop. Hot Pink closely resembles Red Neck.

Plants are shipped bare-root, wrapped in damp sphagnum moss. In its dormant season, it will be shipped as a dormant rhizome with trimmed off pitchers. Photographs are representative of the cultivar, and not the specific plant shipped.

Height: 8"-28"
Plant Type: Perennial, temperate
Soil: Lower Bog Mix or All Purpose Mix
Light: Bright indoors, full sun outdoors
Use: Grows well in the bog garden and greenhouse.

Pretty slow to take off.

4 weeks and so far I only have a small part of a pitcher that has grown out so far. Its June now and well into the growing season in zone 8a. Hopefully once a pitcher opens and it can start eating the plant will speed up it's growth.
