Info

This little sweety is a complex hybrid involving 6 different species from the work of Dr. Larry Mellichamp. Rich red trumpets in nice clumps. The pitchers are highlighted by small white flecks as well. An added attribute is that this brings good hybrid vigor so it will fill out quickly. Good flowers.
