(42 reviews)

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.

    I always expect no less than stellar service with Sarracenia Northwest. The plants are well priced, fantastic quality, and shipped with care.

    Arrived in great shape, as usual. Smaller but numerous pitchers in this plant. My first leucophylla Sarracenia.

    Healthy and beautiful

    Posted by Mark Bauer on September 2, 2017

    Your plants come extremely well-protected and, in every case--I mean EVERY--the plants are super-healthy (compared to previous experience with other carnivorous dealers) and already one or two large leaves (pitchers) have developed. Very satisfied. They are thriving thus far outdoors in Wisconsin. I should be prepared to handle the winter dormancy using the videos produced by you, Jeff and Jacob. Thank you.

    Excellent plant

    Posted by Tim on August 26, 2017

    The plant has adjusted well to our texas heat and is growing new pitchers and catching lots of bugs.
