White Top Pitcher Plant Seed Pod

White Top Pitcher Plant, Early Bloom, Sarcenia leucophyllia

The hollow, erect, white-topped leaves of this Sarracenia, 4-8 cm across at the top of the open “pitcher”, were mistaken for flowers by early botanists, who thought this native perennial to be related to the Jack-in-the-Pulpit. Infrequent to rare in a few bogs and low open areas of west Florida and adjacent area of other states. (Florida Wild Flowers and Roadside Plants, 1982)
