Here is the famous S. leucophylla Hurricane Creek White clone F from Baldwin Co, AL. The spring pitchers sometimes have a little bit of pigment in them, despite the fact that during the fall, they are solid white:

Thanks Kiwiearl! The future in cultivation is secure for these plants, and my hope is that these will eventually make it around the globe. However, It's hard to say if these can ever go back into the wild. The original population had all sorts of S. leucophylla in it, not just var. albas like these, so it would be "unnatural" to start a new population with these genetics. However, it's all that's left as far as I know, so perhaps these can be re-introduced since there is probably enough genetic material to sustain a healthy population.
In the description of S. leucophylla Hurricane Creek White, only clones that exhibit the pure snow white colorations are considered the Hurricane Creek White cultivars. All plants exhibiting any red coloration are not considered hurricane creek white.
However, time has shown that there needs to be modifications to this definition, as some "pure white" clones can exhibit red colorations under certain environmental conditions.
Below are recent photos of S. leucophylla Hurricane Creek White clone F, and to belabor the point, environmental conditions greatly affect the color of these clones. It seems as though dividing may impact the formation of anthocyanins in these plants-only time and a lot more observation will tell.
These are pictures of HCW clone F, taken June 3rd, 2012:
The same exact clone, Clone F. Photo was taken last fall-notice how pure white it is:
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
