Sarracenia leucophylla, Tarnok [DORMANT]
S. 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 at our nursery in Oregon, unfazed by winter freezes. It is a fast and robust grower, forming dense masses of growth points which make for a breathtaking display. Unlike other forms of Sarracenia leucophylla that produce pitchers only in late summer, Tarnok will produce pitchers from mid spring to early fall.

Plants arrived in great condition and look amazing in my new bog planter.
My plants were shipped to me fast and arrived in great shape. I potted them up when they arrived and have flushed out with pitchers in the last month since I have had them. Very happy with my purchase and I will be buy from here in the future.
It arrived very quickly after shipping and started growing very well. Now, a month later I have two almost mature pitchers and a few more sprouting up. Can’t wait to see it in the summer!
Shipping was super fast and packaging was great, the first pitchers are starting to come up!
My plants came meticulously packed and in perfect condition. They are so healthy and much larger than I thought they would be. I am thrilled with these plants and Im sure will be ordering more soon.
Satisfied with my order
Wow! Beautiful pitcher plant well packaged and healthy even though ordered close to dormancy. Five stars all around!
As always, plant arrived in great condition and impress with the great job in packaging. Beautiful plant.
Everything I get from you is always top notch and is doing very well. I'm very satisfied. Please keep up the great work.
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.
