Nepenthes Helen

Last Summer I bought a brand new import hybrid from Borneo Exotics in Sri Lanka; N. Helen, named to honor horticulturist/actress Helen Mirren. This cultivar was debuted at the Chelsea Flower Show in May 2011 and saw a very limited release of plants to the US in July of last year.

When it first arrived, this was a small plant newly imported, barely four inches across. In the past year it has produced four pitchers, the largest is close to 6″ tall (front and center, facing camera). Although not yet fully colored, this new pitcher shows great promise of things to come!
