General Description
Sarracenia leucophylla, also known as white top pitcher, has a frilly hood with beautifully patterned with red veins against a white background. The Tarnok cultivar is unique among the Sarracenia species because of its double petaled flowers.

Coming from Alabama, this plant loves muggy summers. It's an absolute robust grower that clumps very nicely. It's also a fantastic bug catcher and invites many yellow jackets and wasps to enter its pitchers. The Tarnok is also one of the hardiest forms of Sarracenia leucophylla. It comes back every spring after a hard freezes during the winter.

Healthy and beautiful September 2, 2017
Reviewer: Mark Bauer from Pewaukee, WI United States  
Your plants come extremely well-protected and, in every case--I mean EVERY--the plants are super-healthy (compared to previous experience with other carnivorous dealers) and already one or two large leaves (pitchers) have developed.  Very satisfied.  They are thriving thus far
outdoors in Wisconsin.  I should be prepared to handle the winter dormancy using the videos produced by you, Jeff and Jacob.  Thank you.

Leucophylla tarnok May 2, 2017
Reviewer: Neil McInnis from Gainesville, FL United States  
One of the first leaves to come up is twisted and deformed at the top. I'm not sure why it is, it might not be anything serious, or it could be something I'm not doing right.     ***RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST: Sometimes the first pitcher of the season can be deformed as a result of weather fluctuations.  We see that happen on a few plants at our nursery.  When the weather stabilizes, the new growth will appear normal.  Cut off the deformed pitcher after new pitchers emerge.
