While the typical form of S. leucophylla has red veins (against a white background), this green form has green veins. However, it's not truly free of red pigments (anthocyanins). Some red pigments occur when the pitcher is developing, but the red colors disappear as the pitcher opens up. Its flowers are also red. Like other forms of S. leucophylla, it produces 1 or 2 pitchers per growth point. Pitchers are typically 16 inches and look their best in late summer and early fall.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 16 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

• Mature division in its second growing season. (NOT a new division.)
• Acclimated for outdoor growing.
• Shipped in a 4-inch pot. Care instructions are included.

Photos illustrate peak growth in September. Pitchers may not be present outside of peak season. See below for more information.
