Sarracenia Extreme Green
FREE SHIPPING with a purchase of $200 or more!
We acquired a division of this plant from another grower who received it as a seedling. The seedling was labeled as Sarracenia leucophylla species and was thought to be free of red pigment. However, when the plant reached maturity, it apparently was not a leucophylla species but a hybrid possibly with S. flava, and it had red pigment. That was Art’s surprise. The plant is a vigorous grower and divides very well. Pitchers are tall and handsome. The hood is ruffled with faint white spots against a green background. The interior has red veins.
Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.

Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
