Sarracenia x Green Monster is a rare, albino occurring hybrid, S. leucophylla x minor with tall, all green pitchers accented with rows of white areole (windows). It is stunning. The hoods are broad and undulating with ruffled margins. It is a vigorous grower and forms large full colonies. As with other S. leucophylla hybrids, it has a nice show of Spring pitchers, but a great show of large, vigorous and stout Fall pitchers. S. x Green Monster prefers open, sunny, boggy conditions, and holds its color into the frost. Albino or anthocyanin-free plants are unusual for a pitcher plants. The flowers are fragrant, and bloom mid-season. This is an excellent accent plant for the bog garden, and is very showy in large numbers.

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

Plant Type: Perennial, temperate
Soil: Upper Bog or All Purpose Mix
Light: Bright indoors, full sun to partial sun outdoors
Use: Grows well in the bog garden, greenhouse and indoors if provided winter dormancy. Excellent accent plant.

Beautiful AF x Excellens

Ordered one large, and two small plants and received them about a month ago now. Plants came quickly and were packaged well, bare rhizome in sphagnum moss. Large plant came with one large trap just starting to fade and one that was just maturing. After potting and getting settled there are quite a few new traps coming up already. The small plants are also doing similarly well. Not only are these plants healthy and vigorous, but they are a very beautiful AF version of an S. x Excellens. Would order again.
