Sarracenia x Judith Hindle is a medium height pitcher plant with beautiful ruffled red maroon hoods.

The marbled hoods are attractive landing sites for flying insects that are attracted to the leaf colors and nectar. Young trumpets are green, laced with yellow, with a green and white ruffled hood. They soon darken to deep red maroon with white, yellow, red and green mottling in the hood. The paler colors turn pink with age.

  • Sarracenia x Judith Hindle is very showy in the Fall when other plants nestle in.
  • Trumpets tolerate light frost. The showy flowers are maroon red, globular, and mildly fragrant.
  • Sarracenia Judith Hindle generally blooms from April to May before the pitchers fully develop.
