Overview

Prepare to be captivated by the unique and mesmerizing beauty of this exceptional Sarracenia variety.

The Sarracenia leucophylla var. alba DFL08 is a botanical wonder, characterized by its strikingly distinctive appearance. What sets it apart is its near-total whiteness, creating a visual spectacle that is both elegant and rare in the world of carnivorous plants. This remarkable coloration is a result of its specialized adaptation to its environment, making it a true standout. Amidst its snowy-white palette, delicate green veins gracefully traverse the surface of its pitcher-like leaves. These veins not only add a touch of natural contrast but also serve as a functional mechanism to attract, capture, and digest insects, as is characteristic of Sarracenia plants.

Despite its unique appearance, Sarracenia leucophylla var. alba DFL08 shares the same easy-care attributes of its Sarracenia relatives. It thrives in full sun and requires moist, well-drained soil. Its insect-capturing capabilities make it both a captivating visual centerpiece and an efficient predator in your garden.
