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.

Leucophylla tarnok May 2, 2017
Reviewer: Neil McInnis from Gainesville, FL United States  
One of the first leaves to come up is twisted and deformed at the top. I'm not sure why it is, it might not be anything serious, or it could be something I'm not doing right.     ***RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST: Sometimes the first pitcher of the season can be deformed as a result of weather fluctuations.  We see that happen on a few plants at our nursery.  When the weather stabilizes, the new growth will appear normal.  Cut off the deformed pitcher after new pitchers emerge.

Pitcher plants April 23, 2017
Reviewer: mark yajcaji from Nashville , TN United States  
Plants were packaged with incredible care. They are now thriving with two different sprouts on each. The only reason I did not give five stars was because I thought they were a little expensive for the size.
