Sarracenia purpurea 'Jersey Girl' is an Aquascapes clonal selection and introduction from a plant that originated in Ocean County, New Jersey. The lax pitchers are brilliant red, with attractive chartreuse veining near the pitcher tip. Sarracenia 'Jersey Girl' is also topped with clusters of cherry red umbrella-like flowers in April/May (NC). As with all sarracenias, full sun is best both for keeping them alive as well as for producing the best foliage color. Good soil moisture is critical, but don't keep the top inch or two of soil regularly wet or they'll drown.
