Sarracenia x Judith Hindle is a medium height pitcher plant with beautiful ruffled red maroon hoods. Its S. leucophylla heritage accents the hood's lacy red pink white venation. The marbled hoods are attractive landing sites for flying insects that are attracted to the leaf colors and nectar. Young trumpets are green, laced with yellow, with a green and white ruffled hood. They soon darken to deep red maroon with white, yellow, red and green mottling in the hood. The paler colors turn pink with age. Sarracenia x Judith Hindle is very showy in the Fall when other plants nestle in. Trumpets tolerate light frost. The showy flowers are maroon red, globular, and mildly fragrant. With proper care, Judith Hindle Pitcher Plants generally bloom from April to May before the pitchers fully develop. This hybrid resulted from crossing Sarracenia (leucophylla x flava rugelli) x purpurea chipola. The cross was made by Alan Hindle in 1985, and is named for Judith Hindle, Alan's wife. The Judith Hindle Pitcher Plant is an official cultivar of ICPS.

High Fives For Hindle

The Judith Hindle look great, reds ablaze. Seem very healthy. A definite good buy. Hindle never disappoints when healthy. If they continue to grow, they will add nicely to my groups of various Sarracenia. Although quite small, they have done well so far. The instructions for soil, water, temperature zones, need for wetness and limits, and light were excellent reminders as instructions.

Received the three plants well packaged and in good condition. I was a little disappointed at the size as they were TINY, not small. They have survived quite nicely and have started showing signs of new growth. The only problem with the plants is that there were no growing instructions with them. Thank goodness for the internet. So far I am satisfied with my purchase. I am holding back on recommending them as they were just purchased.
