2014 First Pitcher Open: Sarracenia “Legacy”

The first pitcher pitcher open for this year goes to the amazing Sarracenia “Legacy” – a select cross between S. ‘Leah Wilkerson’ and S. ‘Adrian Slack’ created by Brooks Garcia.

I’m quite excited about this plant this year. Not just because there’s FINALLY a pitcher open, but if you notice in the first photo — there’s two flower buds on this plant! I honestly didn’t think this would bloom this year as it had a strange off-season bloom last fall. This opens up some wonderful opportunities for crosses this year. Below are a few photos of S. “Legacy” opening up.

  1. I also was wondering if it was going to flower for you this year. I know you must be stoked to get two buds springing up. I can’t wait to see the progeny this beaut produces for years to come!

  2. Rock on! Looking forward to the seeds too! My plants are approx. 4 weeks early this year, even grown outside.

  3. Wow, we’ve had a mild snowless winter in the UK and we still won’t see first pitchers until late May!
