General Description
 
The sheer elegance of the white trumpet pitcher plant, Sarracenia leucophylla, will take your breath away. Truly unique among all plants, the upper part of the pitcher is white, laced with purple-red veins. Yes, this carnivorous plant is beautiful, and it knows it. It’ll tease you with only one or two pitchers during the hottest days of summer.

This species loves it hot, and thrives in a long growing-season. In late season when the summer heat mellows, S. leucophylla will mesmerize you with a set of extra-robust pitchers, saving the best right before winter dormancy. With most white trumpets, you can enjoy their beautiful leaves well after the first frost, depending on your climate. What a sight to see a white top pitcher peeking out at you through the snow! In mid to late spring, look for large red flowers.
