Sarracenia leucophylla

Sarracenias, otherwise commonly known as Pitcher Plants, are spectacular in flower. Many people are aware of their elegant and frequently strikingly patterned pitchers, perhaps not as many are aware that in spring they can produce large, brightly coloured flowers in various shades from white, through yellow to red and deep burgundy depending on the species.

This year, my Sarracenia leucophylla hybrid produced this beautiful flower. Hopefully when it’s new little Conservatory is built it can grow to produce even more wonderful displays.
