General Description
 
If you're looking for a large, fast-growing plant with outsized proportions, "Cateo" might be the one for you! Emerging early in spring, leaves on "Cateo" are of medium height (12 or so inches) with fabulous elephant-like yellow-green lids which cap the understated mouth. It represents a success popular trend in Sarracenia collections to combine height with oversized lids. A single "Cateo" can appear to take up more space than most other Sarracenia thanks to its huge lid. Leaves gradually turn from green to orangey-red through summer.

"Cateo" is a complex hybrid of the green pitcher ( Sarracenia oreophila), yellow trumpet (Sarracenia flava) and purple pitcher (Sarracenia purpurea).
