General Description
 
We've dubbed this plant Extreme Green because it's extremely big! Without a doubt it's one of the largest carnivorous plant in our collection. One of our mother plant grew nearly over 18 inches across and had pitchers reaching a whopping 36 inches!

"Extreme Green" blooms early and profusely. Tall, robust pitchers emerge by mid-April to May and dominate any collection they are part of. The lids are enormous, over six inches long on adult plants, overhanging a wide, spouted mouth. Traps are, obviously, tall and green. Pitchers develop a prominent throat patch after a few weeks.

It grows its gigantic, oversized leaves rapidly from spring into July and produces a very large, extensive clump. In spring, it produces yellow flowers. "Extreme Green" is a hybrid of Sarracenia oreophila x flava var. maxima.
Plants You Receive
Plants are shipped in 4-inch pots with proper growing media. Each plant is a division from select mother plants in our collection. Pitchers are expected to reach 16-24 inches during their first season after division.

All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.

Please watch the monthly video for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

5 of 5 Extreme Gree April 12, 2020
Reviewer: L from TX, US  
Growing great!  First pitcher is almost 2 feet tall, with several more coming up.  Shipped in great condition.  This was another great shopping experience.  Sarracenia Northwest is my go to Carnivorous plant supplier.  Make sure to check out their videos on their youtune channel for more great information, and if you don't have it and are new to carnivorous plants, the ebook is great.

5 of 5 Fantastic July 29, 2019
Reviewer: ian cole from Evansville, IN United States  
The plant I received had two pitchers that certainly tower over everything else in my collection, it's been a month and already its started new growth points and was able to tolerate the hot month of July flawlessly. I'm more than happy with my purchase.
