General Description
 
This plant resembles the typical variety of pale pitcher, Sarracenia alata, but the inside of the hood turns red. The back of the hood is also bright yellow with thin red veins. Flowers are pale yellow. In late summer when the summer heat mellows, this plant will produce its largest and most attractive pitchers of the season.

Sarracenia alata Red Hood May 14, 2018
Reviewer: Tom from CANDLER, NC United States  
Plant arrived with a bloom bud which opened today with a nice yellow bloom.  Also has several pitchers almost  a foot long but haven't developed into mature pitchers, yet.  Noticed today that 2 different Sundews have volunteered in  the same pot.  Hope they make it.
