Alata Black X Flava Red - Hybrid Pitcher Plant

$ 25.00

This hybrid pitcher plant is a cross between two of the largest, most colorful pitcher plants; alata var. nigrapurpurea and flava var. atropurpurea.  It is a stunning, vigorous plant that is an excellent choice for the gardener looking for variety in their bog garden. 

Plant in full sun to part shade outdoors.  Use peat moss in a very large planter and keep it wet.   In a bog garden, use a mixture of peat moss and sand.  It loses its leaves in the winter.  Cold hardy to 20F in a pot and 0F in the ground.
