Dionaea muscipula 'King Henry'
King Henry Venus Fly Trap
Item #: 3700
Zones: 5a to 9b
Height: 6" tall
Origin: United States
Dionaea 'King Henry' from Don Elkins is the largest Venus fly trap cultivar we've ever seen. This vigorous fly trap clone, named after the equally huge King Henry VIII, reaches 6" tall with huge (for a fly trap) 1.5" long traps...yellow on the exterior with a contrasting reddish orange interior pad. As with all Venus fly traps, moist peat moss is a perfect growing media and remember, they must have a cold period in winter to survive.
