Description
 
This hard-to-find variant of the northern purple pitcher plant is rarely seen for sale, and these vigorous clones offered are exclusive to Predatory Plants. Normally, the purple pitcher plant is red or purple with red flowers, but this extremely rare variant is all green with yellow flowers! S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla produces pitchers with an attractive yellow tinge under optimal growing conditions.

S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla originally comes from mainly Northeastern United States and parts of Eastern Canada, where it grows amongst normal purple pitcher plants. It can tolerate down to 18F temperatures so long as the roots and pot do not freeze solid. A top layer of ice or snow on the surface of the soil is common in wild populations. Conversely, S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla can tolerate up to slightly above 100F temperatures in the summer so long as it is slowly acclimated to the heat. If it gets very hot in your area, we recommend temporarily moving the plant to a shadier location until the heat subsides.

Plants offered are established and well grown, with multiple growth points, and should be flowering-maturity either this or next growing season. There's a very limited supply, so be sure to get them while you can!
Product Details
Grow in full sun and keep the soil wet at all times. Like other American pitcher plants, these will go dormant in the winter and re-emerge in the spring.

S. Purpurea heterophylla July 23, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Federal Way, WA United States  
Plant arrived in excellent shape. A free bonus plant S. Rosea was also included.  I had been wanting an S Rosea so cudos on the selection of bonus plant! My S. Purpurea collection is now complete.

Nice plant June 23, 2015
Reviewer: Keith Coleman from Topeka, KS United States  
I received a nice, healthy plant that is very beautiful.  Also included in my order was a bonus Sarracenia purpurea purpurea. It is a nice little plant, and, surprisingly, its exact origin was indicated.  I am well satisfied.  My only negative comment must be that I got the e-mail notification that my order had been shipped after I received my order.

Arrived quickly, plant looks great March 23, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Los Angeles, CA United States  
My first order ever with Predatory Plants and I wasn't disappointed.  My S. purpurea heterophylla arrived faster than I expected, about three business days after I placed the order and the plant came exactly as promised.  Bare root shipped, fairly large sized plant, and healthy looking.  I was even given a free Sarrecenia hybrid included in the order.  My only concern was that a tracking number was not sent but other than that I would order from Predatory Plants again.
