Bare Root Rhizomes, ready to Grow!
(Sarracenia leucophylla) USDA zones 7 and up (zones 5-6 with protection). This amazing insect-eating perennial is native to the deep southeastern portion of the US. Lovely flowers are various shades of red. Amazing Trumpet-like frilled foliage, (the pitchers), are white-topped and delicately marbled with red and/or green veins. First-year plants usually make 1–3 pitchers in the spring, some flat leaves midsummer, and 1-3 of the most colorful pitchers in late Aug.–Oct. The plants require an acidic, low mineral soil and moist to wet conditions, easily done by container planting in a mix of peat moss and sand or perlite. Full sun for five hours or more is required and indoor growing is not advised, due to light and dormancy needs.
