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.

Amazing grower May 10, 2015
Reviewer: Jesse Iford from Portland, OR United States  
When I first got the plant it had been shorn down to the rhizome and had two short traps growing, about 5 and 2 inches each. The largest trap is easily over two feet tall now and hasn't even opened yet. I used to avoid most pitcher plants for being 'boring', this guy is just wonderful and I've gotten tons of help and support on Allexperts with a number of questions I've had for this plant and others.

Just like everything else I have bought from you guys over the last eight years, my Extreme Green is awesome. I can't wait until later in the season to see how big it can get.  Thanks guys!
