General Description
 
This plant is a simple hybrid of the exceedingly rare all green variety of the white top pitcher (Sarracenia leucophylla forma viridescens) and the exceedingly rare all green variety of the mountain sweet pitcher (Sarracenia rubra ssp. jonesii f. viridescens), making it an excessively, exceedingly rare hybrid indeed!

This clone lacks red pigment, so leaves and flowers are green and white. Pitchers are tall and look deceptively similar to an all-green S. leucophylla, with a prominent, ruffled lid and a gracefully spouted mouth. As true with most hybridized Sarracenia, it is much more vigorous than its all-green parents, and can rapidly fill pots within a few seasons to create a fantastic carnivorous chartreuse-white display.

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 12 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.

Nice well grown plants May 11, 2015
Reviewer: DD from Berkeley, CA United States  
Excellent doing business with SN. I received my plants in great shape, well secured in the package safe and sound, with full tracking details. The plants are nicely potted and very health, well grown plants. They are now basking in the CA sunshine. I look forward to the full summer display of these interesting plants. Thank you
PS, I love the youtube videos.

A little slow coming out of dormancy. Has 2 deformed leaves. But overall looks healthy and should take off this month.
