General Description
We've been dubbing this plant Extreme Green because of its extreme height, its extreme hood that covers its extremely large mouth and its resemblance to the green pitcher, Sarracenia oreophila. The plant is actually a hybrid, Sarracenia oreophila x flava var. maxima.

Our mother plant typically reaches a staggering height of 36 inches each summer. It grows very rapidly and produces a very large, tight clump. In spring, it produces yellow flowers.
Plants You Receive
Plants are shipped in 4-inch pots with proper growing media. Each plant is a division from select mother plants in our collection. Pitchers are expected to reach 16-24 inches during their first season after division.

All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

A pleasure to own August 31, 2017
Reviewer: Ty from Oregon  
The plant was shipped and arrived in great condition, there seemed to be no stresses from the shipping process. Growth seemed slow but the pitchers are very large so it is to be expected, especially after shipping. However growth continued to be slow only yielding one additional pitcher to the one that came shipped. It is also worth noting that pesky yellow jackets would eat through the side when captured. Overall this plant is impressively big and a plant any collector should have.

Excellent. August 10, 2017
Reviewer: Roger Whittaker from Lake City, GA  
This came in excellent shape.  It has several pitchers on it and looks great.  I can't wait until it matures some more and hopefully have some humongous pitchers.

Beautiful Green Sarracenia July 20, 2017
Reviewer: Keith Coleman from Topeka, KS United States  
The plant I received had been packed, as usual, very carefully, and it arrived in good shape.  The plant had one tall pitcher and some shorter pitchers.  The tall pitcher took a beating from a storm and is leaning almost horizontally anymore, but new pitchers are developing and the plant is growing well.  It is a beautiful green color.  When the afternoon sun shines on the plant, it seems to glow yellow-green and looks like a flower in the backyard.
