General Description
 
This desirable form of Sarracenia leucophylla has especially stout traps, with a mouth wider than the typical leucophylla that makes for a substantial pitcher. Like many forms of this species, Lil' 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, Lil' 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.
