The "pure" Sarracenia leucophylla here are exquisite, too. These plants--tall, exhibiting enormous amounts of white delineated by fine venation--embody the attributes of Sarracenia leucophylla that I think are the most beautiful. What a stunning plant.

Isn't it amazing that something this astounding grows in our wild lands, without human fiddling?

And further, isn't it amazing that, as a species, we respect and delight in this species so little? How is it that we allow the continual and frenetic destruction of these superb life forms?

This shows the plants in landscape orientation.

Another view of these marvels.
