General Description
 
Sarracenia leucophylla, also known as white top pitcher, has a frilly 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.

Coming from Alabama, this plant loves muggy summers. It's 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.

Tarnok February 3, 2016
Reviewer: Steven Faith from Summerville, SC United States  
Colorful and full of new growth. I am doing everything that the instruction papers say    to do. Plenty of insects outside for them to consume and watering them with fresh rain water from the bottom.
