Sarracenia leucophylla "Redneck" is a very tall Leucophylla with dark purple red veins. The dark red coloration and veins dominate the upper portions of the tubes which attract many flying insects, particularly wasps. As with Sarracenia leucophylla, it shows a preference for very wet, even water-logged areas. It can easily form colonies with each plant having 8 to 12 pitchers. It is very showy in the Spring, but especially in the Fall when other pitcher plants dwindle. Trumpets tolerate light frost, but do not overwinter. The large showy flowers are bright crimson to maroon and mildly fragrant. They often bend upward after pollination. They generally bloom from March to April before the pitchers fully develop. Stock is grown from tissue culture.

Plants are shipped bare-root, wrapped in damp sphagnum moss. In its dormant season, it will be shipped as a dormant rhizome with trimmed off pitchers. Photographs are representative of the cultivar, and not the specific plant shipped.

Height: 8"-28"
Plant Type: Perennial, temperate

Already standing tall!

I had the plants sitting for a week before I could put them in my bog. When I finally did, it seemed to just take off! Two pitchers have already started, one of which is at least 6" tall. I am VERY happy with how quickly they are transitioning to my bog.

Sarracenia leucophylla - Redneck?

The plants I received were healthy, well packed, but extremely small seedlings. I was surprised by how small they were. They should post pictures of the seedlings with something for scale so people know what they are buying.

Small root

These bare roots are very small, I ordered a medium, but it’s the same size as the small roots I also ordered. They look healthy, but next time I’ll get a live plant instead of the bare root.

Healthy, arrived well packaged.

This plant arrived in the condition described on line. Just what I wanted! Healthy, small, ready to finish dormancy and grow in the spring.
