Sarracenia Cascadian Summer
While it may not be as quick growing or prolific in pitcher production as other Sarracenia, Cascadian Summer has a very sunny disposition with its stout, yellow pitchers and splash of deep red beneath its pointed hood. Light red veins adorn the top of the hood. It's a wonderful mid to late-summer Sarracenia that forms a nice clump of pitchers, up to 8 inches tall.
