Green Monster is a cross of the anthocyanin-free Sarracenia leucophylla and anthocyanin-free Sarracenia minor. Its pitchers have white spots, a pointed spout, and an umbrella-like hood. Although it grows very slowly at our nursery in Oregon, growers who experience hot, muggy summers with long growing seasons report that Green Monster grows very quickly for them.
