General Description
 
'Leah Wilkerson' was first introduced as a cultivar in 2005. The original plant was discovered in a bog on private property in Florida and was identified as a natural hybrid of Sarracenia flava and S. leucophylla, species endemic to the region. The Sarracenia explorers had permission from the landowner to extract a clump. They then named the plant in her honor.

This hybrid is quite magnificent and stately. It has tall pitchers with dark red veins running through the hood. The opening of the pitcher is beautifully marked with a splash of dark red. Moreover, this plant is a vigorous grower. Mother plants in our collection have consistently reached 30-36 inches.
Plants You Receive
Large plants have substantial crowns and rhizomes and are divisions from select mother plants in our collection. Each plant is shipped in a 4-inch pot. Pitchers are expected to reach 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.

5 of 5 Amazing! Very happy with my new Leah May 24, 2020
Reviewer: Zackary Davis  
I got my Leah in flawlessly and a day early at that! It started producing pitchers quick and is about to pop a foot tall pitcher as I type this. I really appreciate SNW sending out quality plants and not dinky seedlings.

4 of 5 S. Leah Wilkerson June 9, 2019
Reviewer: Isaiah Contreras from Eugene, OR United States  
It came packed very well. Good sized division. The pitcher it was growing when I received it was deformed. The lid and lip never fully opened properly.
