Sarracenia 'Judith Hindle' is a popular cultivar, registered Nov. 10, 1998. It is a hybrid between S. purpurea and an intermediate hybrid S. leucophylla X S. flava rugelii. In full sun these develop really deep, beautiful reds!
We grow these in either standard CP potting mix of 50:50 sand:peat, or 1:2 sand:peat. Water by sitting in a tray of pure water, and never let it become dry. Give these at least several hours of full sun each day, rarely they may need some protection from drying out in extreme heat.
Medium plants, shipped bare root.
Dormancy notice: Usually dormancy lasts roughly November through March. This year our long winter has delayed growth and our Judith Hindle are just barely coming out of dormancy in May - Additionally last year's old growth has all been trimmed off.
We grow all our Sarracenia outdoors here in the greater Seattle area. This ensures that they will experience a seasonal dormancy each year, a requirement for healthy plants. Please be aware that many, if not all the pitchers will be dead or dying, and they will begin to look their best again in the spring. When pitchers do form during dormancy, they are commonly of the form known as phyllodia, thin and misshapen. However, dormancy is the best time of the year to ship or repot these plants without stress.
