We're now shipping plants. The early season shipments of Sarracenia are dormant-ready to grow, or just beginning new growth. These stages are more economical to ship, as long boxes are not required. Tropicals, like Nepenthes and Heliamphora get shipped as weather permits. Calopogon ship almost all year. We still have dormant stock of Calopogon, but they're selling quickly.

The Wholesale pricing .pdf file has been updated for retail vendors. Though the Retail and Wholesale price lists are pretty accurate as to availability, please confirm an order with me (see above), and get a shipping cost to add; please ignore the 15% listed on the order form. Once the plants are confirmed, I'll use a postage calculator, based on box size, weight and ship-to zip code, to get the best price/cost to ship an order.

For 2021, we will schedule visits to the nursery; please contact me at my gmail address above, if interested. Only one person or small group, family will be scheduled per time slot to facilitate social distancing. This, with masks and being outdoors is considered very safe and an activity sure to get your mind off anything else! The best times to see the nursery are from about June–mid July, when the spring show is peaking. Thousands of Calopogon orchids are usually blooming in June, making quite a sight in the many growing zones.

For 2021, we're also planning on auctioning off one or two Nepenthes edwardsiana plants, larger, seed-grown specimens. Due to the onerous fees Ebay has been charging us, which includes fees on state taxes, we will likely hold the auction here, on a special web page dedicated for the sale. There will be a link here, the Nepenthes section and on the retail pricing page. I'm hoping to begin the auction some time in May.

Have a wonderful spring!

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.
