General Description
 
We've dubbed this plant Extreme Green because it's extremely big! Without a doubt the largest carnivorous plant in our collection, its also one of the largest carnivorous plants for sale anywhere: our mother plant, nearly over 18 inches across, regularly reaches a whopping 36 inches in height every summer!

"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.

I had no idea this bad boy would be so big! It's started putting out pitchers and I can't wait to see them open.
