General Description
We've been dubbing this plant Extreme Green because of its extreme height, its extreme hood that covers its extremely large mouth and its resemblance to the green pitcher, Sarracenia oreophila. The plant is actually a hybrid, Sarracenia oreophila x flava var. maxima.

Our mother plant typically reaches a staggering height of 36 inches each summer. It grows very rapidly and produces a very large, tight clump. In spring, it produces yellow flowers.
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 podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

End of season/looked different than pictures November 28, 2017
Reviewer: Ray from Corvallis, OR United States  
I got the extreme green and it didn't look particularly extreme or green. But I'm chalking that up to it being younger- the pitchers looked like the pitchers on some of the younger pitchers on the site. So looking forward to next summer to see what happens!   ***RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST***  In late season, pitchers are often shorter than in early season.  Plants also have very few pitchers when they go dormant, which is typical for the time when your order came through.  You can watch our monthly videos for examples of how plants appear naturally at our nursery.  New pitchers will appear in spring.

A pleasure to own August 31, 2017
Reviewer: Ty from Oregon  
The plant was shipped and arrived in great condition, there seemed to be no stresses from the shipping process. Growth seemed slow but the pitchers are very large so it is to be expected, especially after shipping. However growth continued to be slow only yielding one additional pitcher to the one that came shipped. It is also worth noting that pesky yellow jackets would eat through the side when captured. Overall this plant is impressively big and a plant any collector should have.
