Despite its varietal name, maxima, this plant isn't necessarily larger than other varieties of Sarracenia 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.
