Sarracenia leucophylla are often considered to be the most striking of the American pitcher plants. They lure prey with nectar and bright colors and fill rapidly with insects. Since the white coloration is highly visible in moonlight, it is thought this may aid in trapping nocturnal insects. Pitchers grown in summer and fall are often more robust than the first set of pitchers that form in spring.
