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.
