Sarracenia Green Frog Pitcher Plant
Description: Sarracenia "Green Frog" is a natural hybrid of Sarracenia flava and Sarracenia leucophylla from Garcon Point in Santa Rosa county, Florida. It visually leans toward its flava parentage, strongly resembling a petite flava var. rugelii cut throat pitcher plant. Its lime-green tubes have a strong throat blotch and very faint areoles just under the mouth from its leucophylla ancestry. Its distinctive red outlined lid is both subtle and elegant! Traps will often turn chartreuse in full sun.
Sarracenia "Green Frog'" is a vigorous plant that will produce traps all season and readily form a clump over time. Pitchers measure 20 inches in the spring and slightly smaller in fall. “Green Frog” is a great choice for someone looking for a medium height chartreuse pitcher plant for sale to fill a particular spot in the garden.
Pitcher Plant Care: Plant Sarracenia green frog in full sun to part shade outdoors. Use peat moss and perlite in a very large planter and keep it wet. In a bog garden, use a mixture of peat moss and sand. It loses its leaves in the winter. Cold hardy to 20F in a pot and 0F in the ground.
