This monstrose Sarracenia leucophylla was discovered 30 years ago by Coleman Tarnok in Baldwin County, Alabama. Mine's a little young, so I don't have pictures of the flower that makes this S. leucophylla unique but take a look at the ICPS cultivar registration for pictures: A New Cultivar of Sarracenia Leucophylla Raf.
If you remember, about a month ago I got this plant as a small rhizome. Another month later, the 1st pitcher has already opened.
It's making juvenile pitchers, so I might have a few years to go for a flower.
Everyone in their window box. My typical VFT is going to flower soon. If you enlarge the picture you can see the stalk, but it's not much to look at yet.
Dionaea muscipula 'Akai Ryu' has come out of dormancy and started putting out some small traps too.
I also got this Sarracenia flava var. rubricorpora so the S. leucophylla can have something to be tall with. It's just breaking dormancy and has a flower bud growing at the moment. It''s mature so the pitchers it puts out this year should be much much larger. Both these species can be found growing as far south as Northern Florida naturally, so I figure they should do well here.
It's going to be a good summer for carnivores here.
