Sarracenia leucophylla, also known as the white pitcher plant, is a carnivorous plant in the genus Sarracenia. Like all the Sarracenia, it is native to the New World and inhabits moist and low-nutrient longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) savannas, primarily along the United States Gulf Coast and boggy areas of the southeastern United States, where sphagnum moss predominates.
Sarracenia leucophylla can be cultivated as an ornamental plant. Despite its native range in the Southeastern U.S., it is remarkably hardy and can be grown outside even in USDA zones 6 and colder. In the Mid Atlantic region, it can be grown outdoors in standing water with little winter protection. We water ours with only rainwater and snowmelt, and occassionally with well water. Salt and high sodium or calcium content are not favorable.
