Info

This vigorous member of the Little Bugs Series is a cross of S. alabamensis x S. psittacina. The short, green, upright pitchers are topped with dramatic, tattoo-like, red veining around the white "window" in the neck of the cobra-shaped top. You can tell from all the coloration around the neck that they should have used a higher SPF.

Info

How could you resist a plant with a name like doodle bug? And it's a carnivorous plant, no less. This lil' pitcher plant is a hybrid with good vigor and hardiness. Great for bogs or water gardens or any consistently damp spot. At least 6 hours of direct sun for best growth in spring and summer and enough moisture that the soil nevers dries out. Keep water level at or below the crown. Best in poor soil that is very acid, e.g., sphagnum moss with 1/3 sand. Frost hardy to 0 °F, USDA zone 6.
