General Description
 
This is a natural hybrid that you might be able to see in the wild where the range of the yellow trumpet (Sarracenia flava) and the white top pitcher (Sarracenia leucophylla) overlap. The upper portions of the pitcher have reddish brown and dark green veins contrasted against a greenish white background. Look for pink flowers in spring.

Sarracenia flava June 11, 2017
Reviewer: Emilie Weathers from Gervais , OR United States  
This plant is doing much better that the flytrap.  Unfortunately I have an over zealous squirrel that has tried to plant or delve into the soil and has tipped it over several times.  I have the plants together on my front porch where I can keep an eye on them and see if the pest is around.  The S. flavor is growing nicely and looks healthy.  Thanks for your support,
