Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' x minor 'giant' Seed Pack (24 seeds/pack)

Hurricane Creek used to be a site where leucophylla grew in the wild.  Unfortunately all of the plants were destroyed and the site was turned into a highway overpass several years ago.  This site was always known to have some of the most beautiful leucophylla; the upper part of the pitchers were all almost entirely white with little to no venation. 

Sarracenia minor is one of our favorite species.  It's unusual pitchers have an almost monkish, grinning appearance with a domed canopy over the mouth.  On the upper portion of the back side of the pitcher are many opaque light windows.  These windows are the key to it's rather unique trapping mechanism.  When insects are led to the lip of the mouth by nectar trails, they find themselves in a darkened position, due to the over hanging hood.  Crawling insects are encouraged to enter the trap, where it is much brighter, due to the sunlight filtering in through the light windows.

This variety, often called 'Okee Giant', is named after southern Georgia's Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge where most are found.  This variety is known for it's enormously tall and narrow pitchers, which can reach 3 feet!  It often grows on floating hummocks of live sphagnum moss.
