While it's not at all a true anthocyanin-free plant, this green form of Sarracenia leucophylla typically lacks red pigment. However, the plant has red flowers, and its young developing pitchers have a red hue. As the pitcher matures, the red pigment fades and pitchers appear green and white. This is mostly seen during warm weather. Some patience is required as this variety grows slower than the typical form. It's a very spectacular plant that will stand out in your garden.
