    Pinguicula agnata “True Blue” is an incredible variety of agnata that has vibrantly colored purple blue flowers. The leaves have little-to-no anthocyanin (pigmentation) so they stay green even under intense light. Agnata “True Blue” is also a fantastic hybridizer, producing some incredible crosses including our new series “Bled.” The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Pinguicula agnata “Red Leaf” is an amazing variety of agnata that has increased levels of anthocyanin (pigmentation) and will, under intense light, produce blood-red leaves. “Red Leaf’s" flowers are round and mostly white, usually only featuring lavender coloration on the edges of the petals.  Agnata “Red Leaf” is also a fantastic hybridizer, producing some incredible crosses including “Rue” and “Pastel.” The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Pinguicula ‘Weser’ is a very forgiving, easy growing butterwort that’s a great beginner plant. The cross is Pinguicula ehlersiae x moranensis. The flowers are a vibrant pink with darker purple coloration where the petals meet and a stark, solitary white streak at the throat. The leaves can be an intense pink under high light or larger and green under low light. ‘Weser’ is a classic hybrid that has been around since the 1980s. We believe its name comes from a German river near where the hybridizer lived. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Pinguicula ‘Titan’ is an easy growing, vigorous, and aptly-named butterwort cultivar produced by Cal State Fullerton University’s greenhouse manager Leo Song. The parentage is believed to be Pinguicula agnata x macrophylla. It produces enormous, bronzy leaves and large, round flowers on long scapes. The flowers reportedly have a fragrance but we don’t think we’ve smelled them yet. ‘Titan’ will form a tight, subterranean hibernaculum while dormant. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in dimeter. The plants we’re offering are currently dormant, medium-sized plants that should get quite large within the next growing season. While they’re dormant they’re perfect to ship and they’ll be more accepting of new growing conditions if they’re able to wake up in them. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    This is one of Howard’s favorite butterworts. It has one of the larger flowers that are produced by butterworts, second only to perhaps ‘Faulisi.’ They are a beautiful shade of purple and the petals and overall flower are surprisingly flat-surfaced. The plant itself generally stays a lime green, exhibiting little-to-no pigmentation. These plants (including “Sumidero 1,” which we hope to have available soon) were collected in a national park, Sumidero Canyon, in the Mexican state of Chiapas, possibly by Andreas Wistubas. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.

    Pinguicula 'Pirouette' is a hybrid between two tropical species that was specifically selected for its' attractive foliage, which develops a pinkish to red color, and an abundance of flowers in almost any season.  P. 'Pirouette' grows continuously throughout the year if provided warm, wet conditions.  It does not go dormant like many other tropical Butterworts do.

    A wonderful hybrid originally from California Carnivores, “John Rizzi” is a butterwort collection staple that isn’t in circulation much these days. It’s an easy grower that gets quite large, producing gorgeous, bronzy, undulating leaves with sparse, dark venation that are some of the most effective at catching fungus gnats and other small pests that we’ve seen. “John Rizzi” doesn’t flower often for us but the large, round-petaled, pink flowers are worth the wait. The parentage is unknown but this plant was famously crossed by a hummingbird at California Carnivores. Named by Peter D’Amato after, I believe, an employee who was working at California Carnivores at the time. The plant you will receive will be 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Recently registered and featured in the International Carnivorous Plant Society’s September 2022 issue by Howard Bramble, pinguicula ‘Faulisi’ is definitely a collector’s plant. We recommend reading the article on the ICPS website for the story. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. ‘Faulisi’ has by far one of the biggest pinguicula flowers, with a beautiful ruffle to its oversized, hot pink lobes and a contrasting white throat. It is also known to be a great breeder and gives a fair bit of pollen. The plant itself has a stunning rosette of flat, tongue-like leaves with a purple margin to its otherwise bright green foliage, that colors more intensely under high light. This plant typically likes a more mossy mixture in its soil, but will rot if waterlogged for long.  We would consider this to be an advanced level plant.

    NEW TO MARKET - This cute, seed grown cross #21039 boasts a full rosette of round leaves that take on the green-to-pink coloring of both parent plants. As the plant grows, it's easier to notice the "purple pits" between the leaves and may be slightly more on the slower growing side thanks to its parent p. 'Faulisi'. So far, we have not gotten a flower from them but expect it to be a larger flower with slight wave to its petals, somewhere between a deep pink to bright tangerine color. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. We would consider this to be an intermediate level plant.

    The “Yucca Do” complex is a fun one and we’re still working on collecting all of them. There are up to 7 different plants in total (1712 through 1718) that were wild-collected in Mexico in the mid-90’s by Texas-based Yucca Do Nursery and then introduced into the Atlanta Botanic Garden library. The numbers are an abbreviation of a more complicated system. “Yucca Do 1717” is almost certainly a part of the Pinguicula esseriana complex but its exact identification is still uncertain. Under intense light, 1717’s leaves can flush into a pinky bronze color while the thick leaf edges will remain light - creating a unique, contrasting display. It seems that 1717 does need seasonal temperature and/or light fluctuations to flower. The plant you will receive will be about 1" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.

    Each Pinguicula “UFO” is a genetically unique plant grown from seed produced by a Pinguicula laueana “Tangerine” that was pollinated by an unknown butterwort or butterworts. Since this series' exact genetics are a mystery, we named them “UFO” which stands for “Unknown Flowering Organism.”  Howard suspects that there is some Pinguicula ‘Faulisi’ pollen in the mix because of some stand-out, larger flowers that this cross has produced presented ruffled, pink petals. In contrast, some of the smaller flowers that we’ve seen this series produce remind us of Pinguicula ‘Seductora,’ or laueana x emarginata - it's possible some emarginata pollen may also have been introduced. We have also recorded that this plant goes in and out of dormancy frequently, but have not discovered a specific cadence that fits all plantlets. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.
