He's in Washington. His website is https://www.jerryaddingtonssarracenia.com/about. If you think I am wordy, check out his bio on his about page. I think I need another cup of tea to fully understand what he is saying.

It should also be noted that Jerry has a keen eye for Sarracenia breeding. He does a lot of unusual crosses that most people wouldn't think of and produces some truly unique plants in the process.

That is why I was interested in getting some of his lost labels. I'm sure that he had culled them from his keeper list, but I'm sure that some of his throwaways would be amazing. Only time will tell but for $5 a rhizome, I couldn't resist. Just ask @ChefDean about my will power when it comes to sarrs. Spring is a tough time of year for me. That is when most of the sarr deals happen.

Plus shipping. I also picked up a Doreen's Colossus and a Dixie Lace while I was at it. Mine should arrive Friday.

I guess I could buy from jerry addington’s bare root sarrs. Too bad there isn’t a code for $5 off, though.
Does he have high quality plants?
