General Description
 
Sarracenia leucophylla, also known as white top pitcher, has a ruffled hood with beautifully patterned with red veins against a white background. The Tarnok cultivar is unique among the Sarracenia species because of its double petaled flowers.

Native to the coastal regions of Alabama, this plant is an absolute robust grower that clumps very nicely. It's also a fantastic bug catcher and invites many yellow jackets and wasps to enter its pitchers. The Tarnok is also one of the hardiest forms of Sarracenia leucophylla. It comes back every spring after a hard freezes during the winter.
