Sarracenia x Lime Ice is a charming hybrid, S.oreophila x alata, with cool green and white leaves, and amazing green flowers. Pitchers are tall, upright and medium green with red venation. The hoods are broad and ruffled. Large white areoles (windows) dominate the tubes, providing a dramatic look. They grow divisions regularly, and form large full colonies. It prefers open, sunny, boggy conditions, and holds its own into the frost. The remarkably green flowers fade to creamy yellow and are fragrant.

Its name describes its cool green color.
