General Description
 
The yellow trumpet is definitely a handsome plant. Its tall, stout, yellow-green leaves have the cutest curl at the tip of its hood will make you swoon, but it's the sweet nectar that makes flies, yellow jackets and wasps swoon. This plant knows how to attract them!

In spring, the yellow trumpet is usually the first to bring you flowers. Buds form soon after the winter snow melts. Look for yellow flowers in mid spring.

White & Green Sarracenia May 15, 2016
Reviewer: Andrew Ragan from Brookings, OR United States  
My plants came on time & in very good shape.  Both are growing well.  The green Sarracenia has two 8 inch pitchers & 5 4 to 5 inch pitchers and it's only May.  Very happy with Sarracenia West.
