|Fritillaria JJA 17255|
|Fritillaria pudica 'Richard Britten'|
For some years I have had a passion for carnivorous plants. I have a growing collection and have been propagating some of it so I think I'll offer a few different ones up for sale this year. They will come packed in moist peat moss with the pitchers cut back for space saving.
Except I do have some smaller Darlingtonia californica that I csn ship without cutting back. This form is very stoloniferous, practically spilling out of the large fiberglass water trough it grows in.
The list should be out late today or tomorrow for sure. So be sure to check here often for best selections. So far I think I have about 53 different species to offer this year, but smaller numbers then some past years, so order early for the best selection.
Check out that picture! If you can read the label that is a cross I made of Fritillaria glauca X (Fritillaria biflora X Fritillaria purdyi) I was surprised to see such growth after only 2 years, maybe some extra hybrid vigor there. It will be years before I have any of that available, but I'm excited about the possibilities for sure.
Temperatures in the mid 90's, so I'm happy to have the big work of harvest done.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” Mark Twain
