Looking for a Sarracenia that's as cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University? You've come to the right place. Sadly, I doubt this lovely plant has anything to do with Edmund Blackadder but rather the stunning dark tones produced by its carnivorous pitchers.
This is a great-looking Sarracenia. Although not a monster in size it does produce nice-sized chunky pitchers. But the real beauty of Sarracenia 'Blackadder' comes from its deep purple colours.
I believe this plant originated from the European plant nursery Euroflora.

Sarracenia plants are incredibly easy to care for, given the right conditions. An unheated greenhouse is an ideal location for Sarracenia, they can be grown outside in the UK but a greenhouse provides a longer growing season. Here are the 3 golden rules for healthy Sarracenia.
- Provide as much sun as possible.
- Keep their pots sat in 1-2cm of rainwater.
- Use acidic soil. A 1:1 peat moss & perlite mix is typical but you can also research peat-free alternatives.
