Sarracenia x harperi or Harper's Pitcher Plant is a naturally occurring vigorous and robust hybrid of S. flava x minor. Traps are yellowish bronze with a flat hood. They grow divisions regularly, and form large full colonies. S. x harperi prefers open, sunny, boggy conditions, and holds its color into the frost.
