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.

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