Sarracenia 'Mardi Gras' is one of the most stunning pitcher plant hybrids from the Dynamic Duo (the late Rob Gardner and Larry Mellichamp) of North Carolina...a cross of Sarracenia leucophylla x Sarracenia purpurea crossed with a hybrid of Sarracenia leucophylla x Sarracenia psittacina. Imagine making a living by forcing pitcher plants to have unprotected sex...what a rough job! Sarracenia 'Mardi Gras' forms a vigorous clump of 1' tall, upright pitchers that appear like giant red and white veined cobra heads...with bloodshot eyes...beautiful!
