Tarnock 'Sarracenia leucophylla'
Tarnock 'Sarracenia leucophylla' is native to the US southeast. White tops embellish the light-green pitchers that are adorned with red veining. The red and green, double sepal flowers are very unique and unusual. The narrow petals create lovely, orb-like blooms on the Tarnock Sarracenia leucophylla.

Plant your pitcher plants in a small container (8 - 10 inches in diameter) using an acidic, low nutrient soil (like a 50/50 mixture of peat and vermiculite) keep the soil evenly moist using filtered, distilled or rainwater. (When growing in a pond, keep the crown of the plant above the water.) Sarracenia plants bloom best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. Colors and blooms are more vibrant in full sun!
