Sarracenia leucophylla x ( 'Leah Wilkerson' ) Seed Pack (24 seeds/pack)
Sarracenia leucophylla, the white trumpet, is considered by many to be the most beautiful species of American pitcher plant. It produces large, red petaled flowers that can be as tall as 3 feet! The first pitchers of the season are usually thinner and more delicate than the second crop of pitchers produced in late summer to early autumn. These later pitchers put on a spectacular show; they can be as tall as the flowers were in spring! The pitchers are variable with the lower part of the tubes green, tan or purplish red. The upper portion of the tube, mouth, column and lid are nearly pure white laced with a network of veins in green to pink to red to purple.
'Leah Wilkerson' is a renowned cultivar and is a Sarracenia x moorei that was collected in a bog in Florida with the owners permission. It was named for the land owner. There are lots of mooreis in the trade now but this is definitely a choice selection that truly highlights the best of both parents. The pitchers are white topped with a striking red throat.
