Sarracenia luecophylla is a gorgeous species pitcher plant that has become very popular among growers. Sometimes referred to as the white top pitcher plant. It produces tall upright and robust pitchers that have ruffled white hoods streaked with red veining. This magnificent contrast continues down the length of the pitcher until it transitions to a green which follows down to the rhizome. This cultivar usually flowers in April to May, producing showy multi sepelled alien looking blooms. Does well when planted outside in full sun in a bog environment. Zone 5-9.
Plant is currently in a 4” pot.
Sarracenia care: American pitcher plants like to be outdoors. They do well in full sun, bog environments. Make sure their roots and rhizomes stay wet during the growing season. If you must water them, use rain, RO or distilled water. They can tolerate high temperatures as long as they do not dry out. Sarracenias are hardy to zones 4. During the winter they will go dormant and stop producing pitchers. You can protect them from hard freezes and biting winds by covering with leaves and burlap during the coldest winter months. Make sure they do not go dry during this time. In the spring they will ‘wake up’ and produce new pitchers and flower if old enough.
