General Description
 
Sarracenia leucophylla, also known as the white-top pitcher plant, has a ruffled hood beautifully patterned with red veins against a brilliant white complexion, giving way to red and green further down the trap. The cultivar 'Tarnok' is unique among Sarracenia, bearing fantastic flowers with whorls of overlapping sepals - like little red pinecones!

Native to the narrow coastal regions of Alabama, 'Tarnok' is especially cold-hardy here in Oregon, unfazed by winter freezes. It is a fast and robust grower, gradually forming dense masses of growth points which make for a breath-taking display. Thanks to its especially showy traps, it's also a fantastic bug catcher, regularly consuming ungodly quantities of flies and hornets.

5 of 5 Couldn't be better May 31, 2019
Reviewer: Matthew H from Ardmore, PA United States  
Tarnok arrived as little more than a spiky lump with a healthy root system in April, and a month/6 weeks later it's putting up its first pitcher, a pencil-thin shoot of green about 10" tall that's showing no signs of stopping. Very excited to see how it does over the rest of the summer.
