S. flava x oreophila (formerly S. oreophila "veined") with some flowers IMG_5249 by tagregory174, on Flickr
My little section of flytraps, I acquired quite a few new cultivars this winter so I'm excited to see what they do over the summer. IMG_5252 by tagregory174, on Flickr
My first Sarracenia, a hybrid from Eric Morrow, putting out seven flowers, this guy is only three years old. I'm pretty happy with the result IMG_5250 by tagregory174, on Flickr
Little mini bog I built with some extra flytraps, D. binata seedlings and my leuco 'Tarnok' division. not expecting too much out of the tarnok this year but at least the flytraps look good! IMG_5261 by tagregory174, on Flickr

So that's what Mister Rogers wore underneath his sweater all those years. Be super nifty yourself and purchase yourself a Sarracenia Forum shirt! All proceeds go to support efforts of the Meadowview Biological Research Station. teespring.com/Sarracenia2015
rambling thoughts on noting the petals will fall soon....
We revel in the ecstasy of spring as our plants put forth their exotic bloom unrivaled by even the most cherished of humanities many cultivated flowers.Then,all too soon the petals fall but rather than experiencing grief at the loss of our flowers,we growers of botanical predators are excited by the growth of glorious traps who soon open to entice the tiny fauna to become succor to the flora. They managed to bewitch a number of the big fauna into caring for their every need.Unlike other mundane horticultural gems these have not been altered by man to be food for us or our livestock.They have not become tolerant of our climate or forgiving of what we may inflict upon them.They demand their peculiar and very specific needs be met.We,those of us bewitched by their beauty and innocent false guile and savagery,do provide for all their needs even if we must use elaborate and costly aids to change our environment to make a paradise for them. There are those who say mankind is a top predator.....but the sarracenia feed upon the hapless insects but for a few brief months each year.....yet we,the supposed dominant species on this ball flying through space happily comply with all of their demands year round and pledge to do so until death (ours) do us part....
there is no point in trying to avoid it once bitten by the C.P. bug.

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
