General Description
 
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.

5 of 5 Awesome July 12, 2020
Reviewer: Kristen Schlegel from Evans, GA United States  
My 17 year old son wanted to get involved with our COVID-19 new garden. He thought it needed carnivorous plants to help keep the insects out. These are perfect!! They are growing really well and we already have new sprouts. My son read books and articles to learn how to best care for them and replant them into bigger pots because they are getting so big. A great addition to our garden!
