Sarracenia ‘Reptilian Rose’

Sarracenia ‘Reptilian Rose’

Many years ago I used to grow carnivorous plants. Plants from the Sarracenia genus were by far my favorites. With their large, attractive hoods and their beautiful colors, their pitchers look more like flowers than leaves, and they can last for months.

This particular cultivar is named ‘Reptilian Rose’. Fresh pitchers have a pleasant scent, reminescent of English roses, and their hoods mature to a deep rose color. I painted this watercolor back in 2012 for a commission.
