'Dana's Delight' is a lovely carnivorous creature with traps that are stained deep blood red. To about 16" tall and forming clumps from a plant that is best potted in pure peat moss with just a bit of gritty sand. Great in a bog or sitting in a container of shallow water. Fantastical, whimsical drooping green flowers on 20" stems in spring. Full sun to very light shade. Do not feed. Dana will draw her own food into the trap.

Dana's Delight' is a hybrid based on species leucophylla with white hoods accented with much bolder dramatic red veins than other cultivars and, in fullest sun, a pink flush through the white. Pitcher plants are best grown in moist, peaty, acid soil in full, hot sun. They are most easily grown in pots sitting in a saucer filled with one inch of water. Remove the saucer and keep moist over winter.

Info

From Kim Magnuson of Hawaii comes this mid-'90s Sarracenia leucophylla hybrid (Sarracenia leucophylla x Sarracenia x willisii) created by Mark Edwards of New Zealand, who named the plant after his daughter. Sarracenia 'Daina's Delight' (not Dana or Diana) brings even more coloration to the wonderful, white-top pitcher plant. Daina must have really liked rednecks, 'cause the formerly white head and neck on each 2' tall pitcher is sunburn-blister red. As with most rednecks, this one's sure to stand out in your garden. Remember, nutrient-poor acidic soils that stay very damp are the best choice for pitcher plants.
