    An in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Starburst” is agnata “Red Leaf” x rectifolia (CROSS # 21065). This series produces a lot of variability in both flowers and leaves. We named this series “Starburst” because all of the flowers appear to have an explosive appearance, sometimes with imperfections like Tie-dye patterns or mottling that reminded us of astronomical events unfolding— but also the candy, particularly because this series’ glistening leaves often have a pinkish hue that makes the plants look like candy. The mother plant, agnata “Red Leaf,” is known for producing blood-red leaves under high light, due to increased anthocyanin (pigmentation). The father plant, rectifolia, has dramatic, purple flowers with slight ruffles which makes for an endlessly versatile combination when mixed with agnata “Red Leaf’s rounder, whiter flower. Each plant is genetically unique, seed-grown, and one-of-a-kind! The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    This is a new, in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid series. We named these plants for their tendency to produce long, arcing scapes that make the flowers look like they’re shooting stars traveling across the sky. “Shooting Star” is Pinguicula emarginata x ‘Faulisi’ so the parentage is both incredible and varied: emarginata has almost sharp-looking, yet dainty little white flowers with purple venation, while the recently- registered ‘Faulisi’ has possibly the largest flower of all butterworts! ‘Faulisi’s flowers are pink and ruffled, so this strange combination of genes has produced some dramatic flowers. And each and every "Shooting Star" is a genetically unique, seed-grown, one-of-a-kind plant! The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this to be a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    Pinguicula “Scrump” is a currently unknown hybrid that made its way into our collection and has become a fun one to grow. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. The hybrid boasts full, round leaves that stay a neon-chartreuse hue of green. The flower itself is a bright pink with large, rounded top lobes and swooping lower lobes. The name comes from the color scheme, reminding us of Lilo’s voodoo doll, Scrump, in the movie Lilo & Stitch. We would consider this to be a beginner level plant.

    An in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Rue” is agnata “Red Leaf” x agnata “True Blue” (CROSS # 21022). The name “Rue” is a blend of “Red” and “Blue” from each parent's name. Each plant from this series is a seed-grown, genetically unique, pure Pinguicula agnata from two agnata varieties on the opposite end of the spectrum from each other: agnata “Red Leaf” has increased levels of anthocyanin (pigmentation) and will, under intense light, produce blood-red leaves, while agnata “True Blue” has little-to-no anthocyanin so the leaves stay green. “Red Leaf’s" flowers are rather white, usually only featuring lavender coloration on the edges of the petals, while “True Blue’s" flowers are vibrantly colored in a blue-ish lavender. Many “Rues” are already showing the best features of both parents: vibrant leaves and colorful flowers. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    This cross #21049, much like the reverse set, grows very round and compact, with coloration similar to that of its parents. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. The leaves are mostly the typical pale green of pinguicula gigantea, with a hint of the pinguicula laueana red on its margins. The plant will blush more pink under high light, though some like to stay pale green anyway. We would consider this to be a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    An in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Professor Plum” is cyclosecta x ‘Faulisi’ #3 (of 11.) We named this plant for its luscious, plum-purple flowers with subtle, darker venation and darkening, almost blue hues and slight ruffles toward the ends of the petals. The spur is also purple while the flower throat is starkly white. The leaves have a subtle but solid midrib and plum-colored, upturned margins. When dormant, however, the leaves can turn almost solidly green. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this to be an intermediate-advanced level plant.

    This classic hybrid is made up of pinguicula agnata and pinguicula (moranensis x ehlersiae) genetics, producing a beautifully ruffled and brightly colored plant. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-2” in diameter. Grown mostly for the leaves that resemble a tu-tu, it has a bright green coloring with a pink blush under high light and a wavy leaf pattern.  We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    A Bob Beer hybrid we have come to fall in love with, pinguicula “Pink Moon” is a cross made between pinguicula moctezumae and colimensis. “Pink Moon” is named for the incredible round pink flowers the plant produces, some of the largest we have seen in our collection to rival Pinguicula 'Faulisi'! The plant you will receive will be between 2”-3” in diameter. This amazing hybrid’s flower is not only big and pink, but the rounded lobes overlap giving it that “full moon” shape, with a contrasting white and pale yellow throat. The leaves are very long, reflecting the pinguicula moctezumae in its genetics, and stay a bright yellow-green even under high light. We would consider this to be an intermediate level plant.

    A Bramble’s Botanicals-named hybrid of pinguicula agnata "Red Leaf" by pinguicula mesophytica #1, this has by far become one of our favorites for the leaf coloring alone! The plant you will receive will be between 2”-3” in diameter. The leaves of this hybrid sport a bright green center, that fades out into a contrasting dark pinky-red. Fine hairs are apparent and give it a sparkly “peach fuzz” appearance, hence the name. The flower is a light shade of purple that fades out into a darker hue, with a pale yellow throat. We would consider this an intermediate-advanced level plant.

    A Brambles Botanicals-named Mexican butterwort hybrid bred by Ben Siebenaler in Portland, OR. The cross for Pinguicula “Pastel” is agnata “Red Leaf” x mesophytica #2. Even under intense light, Pastel’s mostly green leaves will barely produce any sort of coloration. The flowers have friendly, round lobes that are slightly lavender-colored and will fade to mostly white as the flower ages. This is a pastel even Morticia Addams could love! The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    Cross #21066 is made from pinguicula rectifolia x agnata 'Red Leaf', producing flowers that have a dark stalk with a striking white-to-purple gradient on the petals, lined with dark purple veining reminiscent of galactic vapor trails seen in galaxies. The leaves are mostly green, full and round, with a hit of pink blushing at the edges. It is a fairly easy grower with apparent glands that give it a "sparkle" under high lights; a good bug trapper. The plant you will receive will be between 1.5”-2” in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    To the best of our knowledge, this particular butterwort was collected somewhat recently by Fernando Rivadavia from around the Mexican town of Molango in the state of Hidalgo, making it quite rare in collections. It produces beautiful purple flowers with even deeper purple markings where the petals meet, but the real reason to grow this butterwort is for its leaves - they’re lanceolate-shaped with distinct, cupped margins that fade as the leaves become equally distinct petioles, the latter of which is rare amongst butterworts. The distinct petioles remind us of Pinguicula acuminata but “Molango’s" actual leaves aren’t as broad. “Molango’s" leaves also flush a gorgeous mottled pink with darker, purple venation but in contrast, the center or rib of the leaf remains green. It’s important to note that while in active growth, Pinguicula “Molango” likes being potted in a mossy mix that’s kept quite wet at all times. “Molango” will go extremely dormant at which time it must be kept much drier. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. We would consider this an advanced level plant.
