Sarracenia Leucophylla * White Topped Pitcher Plant * Carnivorous * 10 Seeds *
10 SEEDS OF SARRACENIA LEUCOPHYLLA The White-Topped Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia leucophylla is a tall southern pitcher plant with distinctively red and white colored trumpets. White areoles (windows) dominate the upper portions of the tubes which attract many flying insects, particularly wasps. Sarracenia leucophylla has two trap seasons, producing a few nice traps in the Spring, but a burst of large vigorous traps in the Fall, when it is very showy and other pitcher plants dwindle. It prefers open, sunny, damp conditions, but tolerates semi-dry ones. Trumpets tolerate light frost. The showy flowers are red and mildly fragrant. They generally bloom from April to May before the pitchers fully develop. Appearing white from a distance, these plants are a wonderful accent or spectacular group display in the bog garden. This selection comes from seed, and will show some natural variations. Height: 8" - 28". Plant Type: Perennial, temperate. Soil: Upper Bog Mix or General CP Mix. Light: Bright indoors, full sun to partial sun outdoors. Use: Grows well in the bog garden, greenhouse and indoors. It is an excellent accent plant. Bog garden is best. Also may be grown in containers, greenhouses or as an indoor houseplant. Perhaps too tall for terraria. Growth in containers as an indoor plant can be difficult because of the need for growing season sun and winter dormancy. May be grown outside in low spots or other continuously moist locations, but this can be difficult and is not recommended. Zones: 7-9 (6-10).
