    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.

    An in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Bled” is agnata “True Blue” x agnata “Red Leaf” (CROSS # 21023). The name “Bled” is a blend of “Blue” and “Red” 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 “True Blue” has little-to-no anthocyanin (pigmentation) so the leaves stay green, while agnata “Red Leaf” has increased levels of anthocyanin and will, under intense light, produce blood red leaves. “True Blue’s" flowers are vibrantly colored in a blue-ish lavender while the flowers of “Red Leaf” are whiter, usually only featuring lavender coloration on the edges of the petals while the flower is young. Though we have yet to record a flower, many “Bleds” are already showing the best features of both parents. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Known from just one location in Oaxaca, Mexico, Pinguicula gigantea or the Giant Butterwort is the largest butterwort yet discovered. In ideal conditions, they can grow to be as wide as a dinner plate!  Pinguicula gigantea is also fairly unique in that it produces carnivorous mucilage on both the surface and underside of its leaves and like to be kept wetter. It also doesn’t go dormant, so it produces sticky, carnivorous leaves all year. The flowers are a beautiful purplish that starts to fade towards white as the flowers age. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. Gigantea is also a fantastic hybridizer, producing pollen and seed if manually pollinated. In our experience, this plant is usually at its largest in the fall or winter, flowers in the winter, and then divides in the spring.

    Native to the Mexican state of Nuevo León, the graceful, diminutive Pinguicula gracilis is a delightful little carnivorous butterwort that loves to divide and multiply. It’s an easy grower that produces white flowers with a larger lower central lobe that also features a greenish-yellow spot near the throat. The typical gracilis’s flower stalk can reach over 2 inches tall, but this “Stalkless” variety rarely produces any visible stem, so the flowers open between the leaves of the plant itself! The plant you will receive will be between .5"-1" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    Pinguicula gypsicola x sp "Köhres" (Koehres) is a Mexican butterwort hybrid that is essentially a less expensive and more easily grown Pinguicula gypsicola, albeit with slightly broader leaves. The plant’s father, sp "Köhres" (Koehres), is believed to be Pinguicula gypsicola x moranensis, so there’s a lot of gypsicola genes in this cross. We believe the cross came from Oliver Gluch initially. It's a fun, easy hybrid with long, thin carnivorous leaves and gypsicola-like purple flowers. Under intense light, the leaves produce purple coloration along the margins of the leaf base creating an even more visually complex plant, especially around the crown of the plant. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    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.

    Pinguicula macrophylla is a desired and yet challenging butterwort, but well worth adding into the collection. The species likes to go aggressively dormant, forming a tight rosette of non-carnivorous leaves and should be kept fairly dry when in this stage. When in active growth, the plant has ovular shaped carnivorous leaves that keep a light yellow-green color with a noticeable vein down the middle, and would appreciate being wetter or in a mossy mixture. The flower of p. macrophylla is what makes the critical care worthwhile; boasting a beautiful blue-purple hue lobes, with a white "tongue" like stripe flanked by dark purple spots near the throat. We would consider this an intermediate-advanced level plant.

    A new, in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Doily” is cyclosecta x ‘Faulisi’ #8 (of 11.) Aptly named because it produces pink, round, ruffled flowers that reminded us of the decorative coasters we would see around our grandparents’ homes; additional flower features are purple-veins and white markings close to the throat. This is an adorable cultivar that is still new to market very rare in collections. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate 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.

    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.
