Sarracenia leucophylla var. Titan is a robust very tall-grower with classic stained-glass venation, and dramatically wide open mouths. White areoles (windows) dominate the upper portions of the tubes which attract many flying insects, particularly wasps and stink bugs. As with other S. 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. Titan makes a bold statement in bog gardens, and is quite dramatic in mass plantings. Here at our nursery, I have seen pitchers waist high with mouths as wide as coffee cups. It is one of the tallest Sarracenia, and gets a lot of attention, especially in the Fall.

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 cultivar, and not the specific plant shipped.
