"White Sparkler" is a compact and uniform complex hybrid heavily incorporating traits of Sarracenia leucophylla. White Sparkler, however, is a shorter, stouter grower, expressing far more pitchers and stronger color contrasts. It's a definite boon for growers looking for a compact, colorful plant with rewarding full growth.
The upright traps are white with green undertones, featuring strong red veining near the middle and through the upper portions of the pitchers. Pitcher shape is stocky, emphasizing girth over height, with the fattened throat prominently inflated below the mouth. Lids are ruffled and upright. This plant is an awesome spectacle for any collection.
