With the sunny warm to hot weather, plants lept out of the ground and the early Sarracenia, such as S. flava are maturing pitchers. We're scheduling visitors/tours for June; email Rob (above) if interested.

The wildy-branched Australian sundew, Drosera binata var. multifida Extrema is back in stock. These can make lovely hanging baskets for greenhouse, solarium, or planted in a large terrarium. This species can go summer dormant, when the heat sets in. A small fly's worst nightmare!

Nepenthes edwardsiana update: I'm looking at some established, smaller seedlings and plan on choosing one for auction soon. Details and a link will be posted here and on the retail page.

Customers having tall Sarracenia shipped, please be aware that USPS has implemented new fees for long boxes. A $4.00 fee for boxes over 20 inches and a $15.00 fee for boxes over 30 inches long! We typically ship plants with pitchers intact, often requiring a 36 inch long box. Customers will have the option to have us cut pitchers back, to fit in a smaller box, or pay extra for shipping in a long box.

I've been making Nepenthes cuttings and most are sold to those on a waiting list. See the retail page for more information, or email Rob. Cuttings are held long after rooting, until they are plants with pitchers. I'll be adding N. Ile de France to the offerings soon, a lovely, vigorous old-time hybrid.

Cheers, Rob

older news:
We are planning the release of a new Sarracenia leucophylla, selected for its gorgeous, maroon-red coloring. It's named "Penny Lawson", in honor of her life as an educator of horticulture, my traveling companion and dear friend. Sadly, Penny is no longer with us. She helped rescue plants from certain death while we were collecting from doomed sites, back in the 1970s-80s. Her wonderful personality and "biologist's sense of humor" will be missed. Penny was responsible for getting me into horticulture; for that, I will be forever grateful.

Until a web page is set up, interested persons can information onSarracenia Penny Lawson via email. Release is planned around Sept.-Oct. 2019. Click here to see what the late season pitchers look like.

Older information follows:

While we're trying to sell off most of our "extra" plants, Botanique is retaining (for now, at least) a huge stock collection with all the significant plants being held for a possible transfer, should a non-profit botanical garden get established near Charlottesville, Virginia. We hope to eventually have a large botanical garden which can serve as a domestic gene pool, housing populations of species in a protected environment where visitors can learn about and enjoy a most fascinating group of plants. Many of these plants are found only in the Botanique nursery and include some of the most beautiful Pitcher Plants in the world.
