The Red Apache Pitcher Plant is low growing with short, stout traps, often showing burgundy color and red veins in full sun. In the winter it frequently turns a gorgeous deep reddish purple color. The external pitcher surface is waxy and feels hard to the touch. It tends to clump and form colonies, about 4+ feet across. Traps hold their color through the winter and for nearly 2 years. It is a fragrant, early spring bloomer, growing deep red blossoms on 12 inch scapes that flower well before the new traps develop. Flower stalks and sepals last through the year, resembling green daffodils. It prefers mild summers and cold winters. Red Apache is a new unofficial cultivar.
