General Description
 
This plant resembles the typical variety of pale pitcher, Sarracenia alata, but the inside of the hood turns red. The back of the hood is also bright yellow with thin red veins. Flowers are pale yellow. In late summer when the summer heat mellows, this plant will produce its largest and most attractive pitchers of the season.

Nice color June 18, 2017
Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
Best packaged plants I have received from any grower. Plants were healthy and perfect size to get started in hot Texas sun.   Once they acclimated, they have great color.
