Sarracenia leucophylla 'Tarnok' (Sarraceniaceae)
(sar-a-SEN-ee-ah lou-ko-FIE-la)
Double-Flowered Pitcher Plant

Down in Carriere, MS, Coleman and Frieda Tarnok graciously showed a small handful of friends their bog fields in full bloom, highlighting the beauty and diversity of all the Sarracenias they grow. Then Coleman proudly showed us his prize: a Double-Flowered Pitcher Plant! Overlapping flower petals of light green and burgundy give the nodding flowers a full and ruffled appearance. Handsome lettuce-green tubes are topped with milky-white hoods etched with burgundy veins. A prized plant for the serious bog gardener.
