This plant gets its name from its vigorous growth and lack of green pigments. The plant remains relatively short and compact. A large mature clump will provide an eye-catching accent to any Sarracenia collection.
(Please note that this plant is not the same as Super Green Giant, which is a complex hybrid. This particular plant is a simple hybrid of all green versions of Sarracenia psittacina and Sarracenia rubra jonesii.)
