    This hybrid was named “Improbable” because it is a supposed cross with pinguicula kondoi, which is thought to be sterile. The cross itself is pinguicula agnata "Red Leaf" by pinguicula kondoi. In addition, it has an interesting growing habit where it loves to clump and divides readily. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-2” in diameter. This cross sports a cute white, pale, purple veined flower with “purple pits” and yellow throat. The leaves are rounded, mostly a pale green, but colors up a nice blush-red under high light. We would consider this to be an intermediate level plant.

    This beautiful, unknown hybrid almost certainly contains pinguicula laueana and gigantea genetics. Named for the visual engineer and camera operator responsible for many of the absolutely incredible time lapse shots of plants and fungi in modern nature documentaries, including BBC’s “The Green Planet” with David Attenborough.  The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. Pinguicula “Chris R. Field” has large, tongue-like leaves that stay a pale green and color up with a pinkish tinge under high light. The flower itself is a bright pink with subtle venation, and a pale yellow throat with noticeable white hairs; the lobes are oblong with rounded ends, similar to the shape on that of pinguicula laueana. We would consider this to be a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    This species comes from Hidalgo, municipality of El Chico, Las Ventanas, at an altitude of 3000m, and can be found under oaks and juniper with silty soil in the wild. In winter, pinguicula crassifolia has a small, tight rosette while in the summer it will produce more spoon-shaped carnivorous leaves. The plant you will receive will be between 1.5”-2” in diameter. The flower is a deep, hot pink color with a very fuzzy stalk that sometimes produces no spur - we have chalked this up to a mutation in the plant we have. It has no negative effects on the health of the plant. The leaves will be a rich lime green in winter, becoming lighter in summer and may blush around the margins under high light. We would consider this to be an intermediate 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 gorgeous Mesoamerican butterwort species is a little bit different than many of the other butterworts we have for sale.  In the mountains of northern Central America it grows as an epiphyte, so it prefers a mix with moss and/or bark. In our experience, it also prefers to be kept more wet than many other butterworts.  If grown in ideal conditions, Pinguicula mesophytica can flower all year. The flowers are vivid with a distance white stripe and round petals; the upper lobes give the flowers the appearance of having Mickey Mouse ears. A great hybridizer, mesophytica is also the pollen-parent of a couple of our favorite crosses, “Peach” and “Pastel.” The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.

    Pinguicula kondoi is a wonderful Mexican butterwort with strikingly veined white flowers and colorful, thick little leaves. There is some confusion and controversy over whether kondoi is synonymous with and should be referred to as reticulata, but for now the debate is still open and kondoi appears to be the most generally accepted name. That is also what was on the tag of the original plant that we received. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.

    This unique cultivar of Pinguicula laueana produces flowers that are less intensely red and slightly more faded-looking, appearing orange or salmon-colored. There also appears to be more variability between plants, perhaps because “Tangerine” comes from a California Carnivores cross between two different laueanas: red x fuschia, creating a stunning, new, genetically-unique variety of laueana. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Another variety of the red-flowered Pingicula laueana, the “CalCarn Red” or “California Carnivores Red” has rounder, slightly ruffled flowers compared to the flatter, more rectangular petals of the typical form of laueana. We would also say the flowers may be ever so slightly less red. It is believed that Alfred Lau gave California Carnivores this variety directly. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Pinguicula laueana "Red" is one of those must-have plants. This is the only butterwort with a truly red flower. The leaves produce varying blushes and dark red venation. It’s also a great hybridizer that produces incredible offspring. Honestly, that this plant even exists and is in cultivation is a wonder to me. Pinguicula laueana "Red" was collected by the famous botanist Alfred Lau in 1973 and named after him in 1989. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
