‘Daina’s Delight’ is one of the largest and showiest of the carnivorous pitcherplants we sell at Cure Nursery, with beautiful pitchers up to 3 feet tall. The pitcher consists of a green to rusty red throat or tube, that begins the season deep red but later sports a striking white, ruffled hood (pinkish in the sun) with bold red venation. Although ‘Daina’s Delight’ is a hybrid (Sarracenia leucophylla x Sarracenia x willisii) developed in New Zealand, it’s genes are local as the genus Sarracenia is endemic to North America! The flowers of ‘Daina’s Delight’ are a deep red and dangle from a tall, upright stem, drooping down to form an upside down umbrella shape. Sarracenias evolved to thrive in nutrient poor habitats and meet their nitrogen and phosphorus needs from the insects trapped in the pitchers. ‘Daina’s Delight’ is easily grown in 50/50 peat moss and perlite or sand kept reliably moist with rainwater or deionized water (NO fertilizer), in full sun out of doors, or in a sunny bog garden where it can have access to winter temperatures. Some folks grow Sarracenias in pots indoors (set in a tray of water) and overwinter them in an unheated garage or outbuilding.
