Pinguicula ehlersiae was first found in 1979 by Ms. Renate Ehlers, and was formally described as a new species in 1982. The original (type) specimen was collected near Guadalcazar in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. However, the original stock that this plant descended from originated near Ixmiquilpan in Hidalgo, Mexico. There's no doubt it's a nice plant, and we think this is one of the most beautiful of all butterworts! The small, rounded leaves are a deep reddish-pink, with brilliant white edges that roll up and provide highly contrasting lines between the leaves. REALLY NEAT! Beautiful fuchsia flowers with a white splash in the centers too! PLEASE NOTE that this is a diminutive species, and mature plants are approximately 1.5 inches in diameter. Because of the small size of this plant even when full-grown, Small Potted plants of this item will be approximately 1/2-inch in diameter (more or less) when shipped. All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers.
