Description
 
Venus flytrap 'Burbank's Best' is a cultivar that produces large, all-green traps for most of the growing season, and slightly pink traps in the Fall. When an insect comes in contact with the tiny trigger-hairs inside of the Venus flytrap 'Burbank's Best's' mouth, the trap will shut in a fraction of a second. The insect will then be digested by the Venus flytrap over several days. Venus flytrap 'Burbank's Best' are temperate perennials, which means they require a Winter dormancy.

This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.
