We have a selection of hardy sarracenias for sale. Suitable for growing in pots or pool edges and bog garden providing it has acidic conditions, direct sunight and low nutrients.

Sarracenia require full direct sun. As such, they are candidates for only the brightest of windowsills - direct sunlight will help your plants remain strong with good trumpet colour.

Always water with rainwater.

The traditional compost mixture for  Sarracenia is sphagnum peat moss mixed with either lime-free horticultural sand or perlite to a ratio of about 2:1. 

Since our nursery is peat-free - and has been for the last 20 years - we pot our insectivorous plants in a highly composted quality bark with perlite added. Never add fertiliser or liquid feed as the plants get their nutrients from the insects they trap.

Insectivorous plants are great for getting children interested in plants - little boys love them (and big boys too!).

See also Darlingtonia and Drosera under the A to Z list.

The lids of the trumpets are a rich copper colour.

Salvia greggii 'Royal Bumble' bears masses of hot red flowers, in contrast with dark purple-green stems and leaves. Loves a sunny site but I find these salvias can also stand a bit of shade.
