Description
 
The red-throated yellow trumpet pitcher plant naturally occurs in bogs throughout Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. They were once common in the wild but today, like all North American Pitcher Plants, they have become quite rare . The majority of the remaining populations are found in Northwestern Florida, although there used to be very large populations in Georgia.
Sarracenia flava var. rugelii is one of the easiest North American Pitcher plants to grow, and when placed in full sun, the pitchers can turn lemon yellow in color. The red color in the throat becomes well defined on large, adult pitchers.
Plants offered are well established divisions with healthy roots, and we carefully selected only the best individuals from our large collection for propagation. If you’re looking for a beautiful, quality plant that's easy to grow, you've found it!

Nice S. flava plants and no problems with order October 21, 2015
Reviewer: Keith Coleman from Topeka, KS United States  
I ordered S. flava var. rugelii and received two nice starter plants.  One was a bonus plant.  (Thanks guys!)  I received an e-mail notification about when my order was shipped and when it would arrive.  There were no problems: my order was shipped and did arrive at my house when it was expected.
