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.
