This is a beautiful cultivar of S rosea. It is prized for its bulbous pitchers that grow relatively tall and erect. The hood is veined with frilled margins making it quite attractive. The pitcher is thick with small hairs covering most of the plant with a larger concentration on the interior of the hood. Their color tends to be dark purple with maturity while the newer pitchers are greeninsh with nice veining. They do best in bog environments with quite a bit of sun. They do best in warmer climates and are found naturally along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Mississippi. Available in a 4" pot. These plants should reach maturity in 1-2 seasons, eventually producing pink petalled flowers typical of Sarracencia.
An alternative name for this plant is Sarracenia purpurea subsp. venosa var. burkii
