Sarracenia x Purpetrator was crossed and selected for its showy, stout, appearance. It is like an erect S. purpurea with maroon coloring overall. Its traps and hoods gently curve upward. The traps are short and waxy with durable red traps. They are striking in full sun when the traps develop their richest colors, and darken into Fall. It holds its traps and color through the Winter. It is an early Spring bloomer with maroon blossoms that flower well before the new traps develop. Flower stalks and sepals last through the year, resembling green daffodils. It is a wonderful addition to the collection, especially those in the north, where it performs well with winter protection. It is also a great terrarium plant, with traps that can last 2 years. This is a cloned complex cross cultivar S. purpurea purpurea x catesbaei x oreolophylla x Amber Rays.
