Sarracenia x Daina's Delight or sometimes Dana's Delight, is a beautiful, tall hybrid pitcher plant with a ruffled red, pink and white lacy hood. The upper tube is tinted a delightful hot pink and stands out in the crowd. The ruffled and lacy hoods are busy with insect activity. S. x Daina's Delight is very tall and showy especially in the Fall when other pitcher plants are less attractive. The trumpets tolerate light frost. S. x Daina's Delight like similar red-tubed Pitcher Plants produce a small number of pitchers. The showy flowers are fuchsia/chartreuse, globular, and mildly fragrant. They generally bloom from April to May before the pitchers fully develop. This complex cross cultivar is S. willisii x leucophylla, which in full is ((S. psittacina x purpurea) x (purpurea x (flava x purpurea)) x leucophylla. Daina's Delight or sometimes Dana's Delight was developed by Mark Edwards in the 1990s, and is named after his daughter Daina.
