Description

Pinguicula, a.k.a. Butterwort, is a genus of carnivorous plant that is divided into temperate species and tropical (often referred to as Mexican Butterworts) species.  Temperate species endure cold winters by producing a dormant bud (hibernacula) during winter.  Tropical species endure dry winters by producing a “succulent like” non-carnivorous leaf.  However, some tropical species will grow carnivorous leaves year round if they are kept warm and wet.

Pinguicula ‘Pirouette’ is a hybrid between two tropical species (P. agnata x P. moranensis) 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.  Your plant will be shipped bare root (unpotted), wrapped in moss.  You can purchase a pot and soil to be shipped with your plant here.
