The White-Topped Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia leucophylla is a tall southern pitcher plant with distinctively red and white colored trumpets. White areoles (windows) dominate the upper portions of the tubes which attract many flying insects, particularly wasps. Sarracenia leucophylla has two trap seasons, producing a few nice traps in the Spring, but a burst of large vigorous traps in the Fall, when it is very showy and other pitcher plants dwindle. It prefers open, sunny, damp conditions, but tolerates semi-dry ones. Trumpets tolerate light frost. The showy flowers are red and mildly fragrant. They generally bloom from April to May before the pitchers fully develop. Appearing white from a distance, these plants are a wonderful accent or spectacular group display in the bog garden. This selection comes from seed, and will show some natural variations.

Plants are shipped bare-root, wrapped in damp sphagnum moss, unless potted option is selected. In it's dormant season, it will be shipped as a dormant rhizome with trimmed off pitchers. Photographs are representative of species, and not the specific plant shipped. Veining and coloration may vary because these are a seed strain.

Height: 8" - 28".
Plant Type: Perennial, temperate.
Soil: Upper Bog Mix or General CP Mix.
Light: Bright indoors, full sun to partial sun outdoors.
Use: Grows well in the bog garden, greenhouse and indoors. It is an excellent accent plant.

Small means small

It’s my fault that you can select sizes and I did not notice. If you are planing to purchase up grade the size.
