"Sylwia" is a cultivar, Sarracenia purpurea venosa "Sylwia" with dazzling pinkish orange pitchers. It is a compact and low growing pitcher plant that produces dozens of colorful pitchers covered with a fine fuzz. It does well in the sun and shade, and remains compact in size. The traps darken with a nice red/orange hue and present a very colorful grouping. The pitchers often last for 2 years. The flowers are reddish-orange, and fragrant. They generally bloom from March to May before new pitchers fully develop. "Sylwia" is an excellent addition to the front of your bog garden or in your collection. It is uniquely spectacular and will grow in northern zones with protection. "Sylwia" is an unofficial cultivar.
