The Bug Bat Pitcher Plant, an imposing cultivar, features copper-toned pitchers adorned with rounded, gracefully arching, reddish hoods. The trap tops are characterized by their slender profile, showcasing the captivating red and white hues inherited from its S. minor parentage, complete with distinct veining and rows of white areoles (windows). This robust plant readily establishes dense colonies and flourishes in open, sun-drenched, boggy environments, maintaining its vibrant coloration even through frosty conditions. Its dark red, fragrant flowers typically bloom in the middle of the season, making it a standout addition to your bog garden. Bug Bat is a multifaceted cultivar believed to be a hybrid of (S. alata x psittacina) x minor Okee.
