Sarracenia x areolata is a naturally occurring hybrid, S. alata x leucophylla with tall, erect green pitchers accented with rows of white areole (windows) and broad scarlet red veins.

The hood is tinted a pinkish orange, has wavy margins, and arches over the trap opening.

As with other S. leucophylla hybrids, it has a nice show of Spring pitchers, but a great show of large, vigorous and stout Fall pitchers that can appear a rusty red. S. x areolata prefers open, sunny, boggy conditions, and holds its color into the frost.

The flowers are fragrant, have a creamy pink color, and bloom mid-season. This hybrid is named after the plentiful rows of areoles or windows.
