Project Description

Sarracenia ‘Judith Hindle’

This gorgeous cultivar was bred by Alan Hindle in England and named after his wife by Peter D’Amato of California Carnivores. Parents of S. ‘Judith Hindle’ are from two separate clones of S. (p x f) x l. This is read as Sarracenia purpurea crossed with S. flava, then this offspring is crossed with S. leucophylla.

The plant has 8-12 inch pitchers with ruffled hoods. Coloration starts as a light green and turns deep red with white blotches with age and in full sunlight.

Unique biology of a Sarracenia ‘Judith Hindle’

Trap characteristics

The traps on this pitcher plant demonstrate characteristics of the parents: Ruffled hoods and deep red coloration of Sarracenia purpurea, narrow pitchers of S. flava and leucophylla, and white pitcher splotches of S. leucophylla. This pitcher plant is a ravenous wasp and fly hunter.

Other notable characteristics

Most vigorous growth occurs during spring and early summer, but the plant does pitcher throughout the entire growth season. With age, this pitcher plant’s rhizome will produce a healthy number of offshoots that can be divided during winter dormancy to increase your collection.

Sarracenia flava var. rugelii

Known as the cutthroat pitcher plant due to the distinct blood red throat blotch. The coloration and high density of nectar glands at this location on the pitcher act as a lure for hungry insects. It's no coincidence that the blotch is located right above the plant's mouth.
