Whitetop pitcherplant is a frequent pitcherplant of bogs, seepage slopes, wet prairies, and acid swamps from Leon & Franklin Counties west through much of the panhandle. The range extends into Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, plus North Carolina.
The erect pitchers are green on the lower part and white on the upper portion with red reticulate markings. The hood margin is undulate, or wavy. The pink to dark red flowers have 5 sepals and petals and unbrella-like styles. Flowers appear at the end of tall stalks.
