Without a doubt, this plant is one of the largest Sarracenia in our collection. One of our mother plant grew a clump nearly over 18 inches across and had pitchers reaching a whopping 36 inches! Extreme Green is an early season plant. It blooms early and profusely, typically by mid-April at our nursery. Its first set of spring pitchers can easily tower over the other Sarracenia in the collection. The lids on the pitchers are also enormous, over six inches long on adult plants, overhanging a wide, spouted mouth. Pitchers develop a prominent throat patch after a few weeks after opening. As an early season plant, it also goes dormant early. By August, pitchers will start to dry up , starting from the top. By late September, the plant will be fully dormant.
