Sarracenia leucophylla, Lil' Big Mouth

$39.95 $31.95
(6 reviews)

This desirable form of S. leucophylla has especially stout traps, with a cavernous mouth that makes for a substantial pitcher. Like many forms of S. leucophylla, Lil' Big Mouth is a tough plant and will keep its autumn leaves well into winter. It can still be seen even after heavy snow, peeking out of the drifts! It's spring pitchers, however, are wispy compared to the pitchers of late summer and fall. That's when this plant produces its largest and showiest pitchers. The patient gardener will be rewarded with a show-stopping plant in late season.

    This came with the small mouth variety. Interesting stoma (mouth), the wider to catch bugs. Very healthy.
