This fantastic cross combines the best of both worlds: the light-windows and translucence of Sarracenia leucophylla, with the stout form and vigor of S. oreophila. A truly rewarding beauty, it produces many full-sized pitchers with generously wide mouths. The upper portions of the trap are dotted with light windows, so that in the sun they catch light and glow like fat green lanterns!
During the hottest
parts of summer, the plant will take a short siesta. In late summer
when the weather cools, look for a fresh set of larger pitchers for the fall season. Produces many stunning red flowers in spring.
