Sarracenia ‘Leah Wilkerson’ is a naturally occurring hybrid discovered in Walton County, Florida in 2002 by Brooks Garcia. It is renowned for its vigor, size and coloration. In cultivation it can reach 36 inches in height. Lids are a pale yellow verging on white, with regularly spaced red veining throughout. This is the crown jewel of any pitcher plant collection.

Plant in full sun to part shade outdoors. Use peat moss and perlite in a very large planter and keep it wet. S. ‘Leah Wilkerson’ will reach its full potential only when grown in a planter with adequate room. Try a 5 gallon or larger container. 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.
