Sarracenia leucophylla viridescens is a robust tall-grower with dramatic green and white tops. Unlike the Green variety, this one has absolutely no red pigment. It is anthocyanin free. It has a remarkable yellow flower, which in a "normal" S. leucophylla would be deep red. It clearly attracts attention in the bog garden. It is an adaptable and robust pitcher plant. 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 yellow, and mildly fragrant. They often bend upward after pollination. They generally bloom from March to April before the pitchers fully develop. It can produce plentiful seeds.

Height: 16" - 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. Excellent accent plant.
