I recently found out about S. rubra jonesii being reintroduced back into Biltmore, NC in 2006. It was done by Meadowview and that is about all the information I could find about it. Does anyone here know how successful this venture was?

Hi Bog grower:
You can read about the Biltmore reintroduction of Sarracenia jonesii in our 2007 newsletter at www.pitcherplant.org. Short story, this is our most successful S. jonesii reintroduction to date, largely because the Biltmore staff does what is needed - Management - and cares about the project. We had a much more successful reintroduction at Falling Creek Camp for Boys in Tuxedo, NC but that colony has collapsed due to lack of managementr due to change in ownership.
What this means is that Meadowview is focusing on the preserves we own and have perpetual conservation easements on. We don't have time or plant resources to waste on organizations or individuals who won't maintain or conserve the plants. This topic will be discussed in our upcoming CPN article if you want to read it.

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
