Here's several different clones-although no maximas turned up in this group, there is an ornata here and there. There are some individuals that form clumps with tons of baby sideshoots-didn't get a chance to photograph them, but I'll add them to the mix in the near future. Anyhow, enjoy the slight variations in the pictures below:
All pics are S. flava var. flava Onslow Co, NC:

Been growing a population of these plants for more than a decade, and to be honest, they were neglected to the point of almost losing them. I looked at my notes, and they were transplanted back in 2011, so they went 9 years in the same soil! Every year, I looked at the population and was determined to get to it, but homies never did until last year! I think it was our very own ALMIGHTYDOLLA who inspired me to do something about it, his yearning for flavas and intense focus on the species spiked motivation in me to make these look nice again.
Thing is, this population has genetic POTENTIAL, which had been hidden for a long time under the guise of poor care. If you're looking for very yellow genes, the flava var. flavas have it (ie. goldie). But I can't believe that after all these years, even after seeing very yellow clones, I kinda just said "meh" to these plants. Not anymore! Here's what I'm talking about, this is an old photo from many years ago, these traps are really YELLOW:
What's also a bit shocking is a year after repotting, one turned out to be a maxima! Keep in mind, maximas can be a bit tricky and produce veins, so don't be shocked if this exact clone looks like a flava var. flava next season. Pics taken 4/16/20:
Other plants still need more time to develop traps, so stay tuned!

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
