Sarracenia flava maxima

(7 reviews)

Despite its varietal name, maxima, this plant isn't necessarily larger than other varieties of S. flava. The feature that sets this one apart is its pure luminescent yellow-green hue, lacking any red veining. However, this is not a "pure green" form, as red pigment is visible in young developing pitchers, which gradually fade as the pitcher matures. A very vigorous and striking plant which emphasizes the classic Sarracenia form. Rewarding to grow, with eye-catching, robust traps. Its best pitchers occur in spring and early summer.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 18 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
