General Description
What a gullet! We call it "Big Mouth" for a reason! This desirable form of the White Trumpet has especially stout traps, with a cavernous mouth that makes for a substantial pitcher. Like many forms of Sarracenia leucophylla, Big Mouth is a tough plant and will keep its autumn leaves well into winter. It can still be seen even after heavy snow, peeking out of the drifts! Although it produces fine foliage in spring, Big Mouth produces its largest pitchers mostly in late summer and early fall. The patient gardener will be rewarded with a show-stopping plant in late season.

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 8 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 for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

Reviewer: Mark Bauer from Pewaukee, WI United States  
This came with the small mouth variety. Interesting stoma (mouth), the wider to catch bugs. Very healthy.
