This hybrid is a sister of Appalachian Spring and Mountain Splendor (Sarracenia oreophila x rubra jonesii). Pitchers on an adult plant typically reach 18 inches, taller and greener than its sisters. In spring, Mountain Meadow produces yellow flowers, whereas her sisters produce red (Appalachian Spring) and peach (Mountain Splendor) flowers. Mountain Meadow is an early season plant, producing its best pitchers in early summer. In mid summer, the plant will cease pitcher production. When the summer heat subsides, it will send up another set of pitchers that are stouter than the first.
