Description
 
As the name implies, this butterwort is one of the largest and most impressive in the genus. Pinguicula gigantea is also unique in that it produces sticky secretions on both the upper and under sides of its leaves. The leaves grow in large rosettes, and the flowers are typically purple. Insects become stuck to the surface of the leaves and flower stems, and are then digested.

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.
