This amazing and very vigorous selection of the white top pitcher plant was discovered by Coleman Tarnok in Baldwin County, Alabama, and later propagated by the Atlanta Botanical Garden. While the red-veined, white-topped pitchers look normal (as much as any pitcher plant looks normal), it is the alien-like flowers that boast an extraordinary double set of sepals. In flower, Sarracenia 'Tarnok' is truly something worth inviting the garden club over to see. Royalties from each plant sold go to the endangered plant conservation program at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

Tarnok' is a graceful pitcher plant that attracts and supplies its own food with little intervention needed from humans. Thin, white veined traps with a hooded opening attracts and digests small bugs. The bugs become disoriented by the fenestrations- or windows that let light into the traps. Fine hairs pointed downward inside the trap draw the prey downward to the digestive juices. To 2' tall and forming imposing clumps. Best in shallow water- not covering more than 3? of the base in full sun to very light shade. Space age green flowers in spring. Beautiful and fascinating.

Dramatic white hoods with bloodshot red veins jetting through. If that isn't enough, what about double red flowers? 16" tall clumps.
