This is S. flava var. maxima Cartaret Co., NC #F27 Mike describes this as a neon yellow-green and he is right - it's hard to capture it with my camera phone, but the color is great! Very nice shape as well:
Earlier this week I received all sorts of awesome, top quality, plants from Mike. I may have went a bit crazy ordering, but it is always well worth it! Thanks again, meizzwang!
All the pots along the closest side of the water table are the plants I got (the large pot is from a previous order), plus a few others that are in the second and third row. Please excuse the sulking pitchers, we got a lot of rain last night. Water Table Overview by Adam B., on Flickr
So I originally told myself that I wasn't going to order from Mike until next year but after seeing all of the pictures of his plants on this thread I just couldn't wait until then. So I decided to place my first order with him last week and wow he has some really healthy plants. Two thumbs up for Mike in everything he did with this process. He was able to put up with my back and forth decisions and answered every question I had. The shipping was great and the plants arrived in great condition. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for great quality sarracenia. Here is what I ordered:

stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
