General Description
 
This plant is a natural cross of the pale pitcher (Sarracenia alata) and white top pitcher (Sarracenia leucophylla). The typical form of this hybrid has tall thin pitchers. The hood has dark brown veins against a delicate shade of yellow. A very sublime plant for your garden.

Plants are letdowns May 2, 2017
Reviewer: Craig Ellis  
There is no sign of white at all and I was really wanting white caps, it was the reason I was willing to pay so much. They are just plane green. I could buy these way cheaper somewhere else.      ***RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST: Sorry the plant didn't have any white caps (hoods). To be fair, it is very early in the growing season and this hybrid is a late season plant, which means their best pitchers are seen later in late summer, right after the hottest parts of summer.  The weather also needs to be consistently warm and very sunny.  It's perfectly normal for the hoods to be green during early spring.

Tall Slender Plant June 12, 2016
Reviewer: Jesse Iford from Portland, OR United States  
A really quick grower the traps are easily 2 feet tall but incredibly slender, almost like pipe cleaners. Love the coloration, needed some variety from all of my 'normal' plants.

Nice well grown plants May 11, 2015
Reviewer: DD from Berkeley, CA United States  
Excellent doing business with SN. I received my plants in great shape, well secured in the package safe and sound, with full tracking details. The plants are nicely potted and very health, well grown plants. They are now basking in the CA sunshine. I look forward to the full summer display of these interesting plants. Thank you
PS, I love the youtube videos.
