These genetics don't follow general Mendelian theory. It's a whole lot more complicated than a single allele locus.
Nevertheless it would still be nice to perform some classical genetic experiments to see if it is possible to calculate the number of colour genes defining the different varieties in S. flava. Question is: who has the time and space? At least if this hasn't been done yet.
First of all, this is a wonderful plant. I got mine half-way through the growing season last year and I knew it would be looking good this year after recovering from division. It seems like it's going to be a vigorous and hopefully trouble-free clone. Here it is a day or two ago: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr At least under my conditions this year I'd put this plant more on the cuprea spectrum than the atro end of things. The color saturation is absolutely insane, but it's more of the caramel brown of cuprea than the blood red of atropurpurea. In the photo below there is a nice atro clone in the foreground with the "atrocuprea" (as almightydolla and I call it) peeking out just behind - the color contrast is evident. It is without a doubt one of the most saturated cupreas ever, and it seems that it can get more of a red cast in certain environmental conditions like Mike-izzle Wang's back yard and Steve's greenhouse Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr
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
