Here's another genus plants that I love to see growing alongside Sarracenia. There are so many neat species, but I usually only see P. lutea in cultivation. Many have a fragrant root system (hence the name candyroot), smelling like licorice or spearmint/wintergreen. A more modern common name I've heard for P. lutea is bog cheetos.
P. lutea in the wild at Buttercup Flats, De Soto National Forest, Stone Co., MS.
P. cruciata? at The Nature Conservancy's Splinter Hill Bog Preserve, Baldwin Co., AL.
Meadowview has a fairly extensive list of associate bog plants available for sale on our catalog at www.pitcherplant.org. There are many other associate species we are growing but we haven't listed because we're not sure of the interest, and hence aren't ready to commit the effort in propagation. Polygala cruciata, for example, is one of the plants we have in cultivation but is not listed in our catalog.
If there is an associate bog species you want, please contact us privately for availability and pricing at email@example.com.

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
