Sarracenia leucophylla has a ruffled hood beautifully patterned with red veins against a brilliant white complexion, giving way to red and green further down the trap. The cultivar 'Tarnok' is unique among Sarracenia, bearing fantastic double-petaled flowers with whorls of overlapping sepals - like little red pinecones! Native to the narrow coastal regions of Alabama, 'Tarnok' is especially cold-hardy here in Oregon, unfazed by winter freezes. It is a fast and robust grower, gradually forming dense masses of growth points which make for a breath-taking display. Unlike other forms of Sarracenia leucophylla that produce pitchers only in late summer, Tarnok will produce pitchers, up to 18 inches, from spring to early fall.

    Couldn't be better

    Tarnok arrived as little more than a spiky lump with a healthy root system in April, and a month/6 weeks later it's putting up its first pitcher, a pencil-thin shoot of green about 10" tall that's showing no signs of stopping. Very excited to see how it does over the rest of the summer.
