Sarracenia x Amber Rays is a charming, variable, cultivar which generally has wide golden hoods with vertically extending dark red veins, that resemble sun rays. It is short and with waxy, durable green and red traps. It is 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 orangey-red blossoms that flower well before the new traps develop. Flower stalks and sepals last through the year, resembling green daffodils. It is a rare complex cultivar, and a wonderful addition to your backyard bog garden or collection. This is a complex cross cultivar.
