For me, your clone F is the nyciest of all known clones of this cultivar. At this moment i only have 10 clones of this cultivar. For next Spring i will Start selecting seed from the whitest, ones in order to get the purest white the possible one can get. I know it may be an utopia, but its verry good to DREAM...
Nelio: beautiful plants, and I agree: clone F has proven year after year to be one of the best leucophylla clones in cultivation. I think what's impressive is the sharp, contrasting dark green body with the solid white top. There are "whiter" clones out there, like the ones I recently photographed in the wild, but they have red or other pigments below the body. Those clones are also quite impressive, although they seem to only produce such colors in the wild. I suspect we have them in cultivation, but it's probably difficult to tease out the pure white colors.
Sorry for the late reply oliv, missed your question! clone A was very tall for me this year, probably a little bit less than a meter?
I think clone F and clone E can probably get just as tall, but clone E produced the largest pitchers so far out of all the Hurricane creek whites. Clone A this year had an enormous rhizome, which is probably why it was able to produce such a tall pitcher.
Here's an interesting clone F pitcher I spotted the other day. As Mike has pointed out, the HCW plants can produce red pigments in the traps under certain conditions (we're not sure what exactly those conditions are lol). This leaf has a pretty much fully red-veined lid! This is the real deal from Mr. Wang himself, and this guy had very white fall traps last year. Just goes to show the incredible complexity of these plants...
Wow, that's definitely clone F, but I've never seen red veins on the top like that. Thanks for sharing Calen, that's crazy! Maybe it got scared and is trying to "blend in" with the rest so nobody "ganks" it from your collection, haha
some new photos, taken right before the heat wave we just had here in Northern California. A few pitchers got a little fried on the tip of the trap but that has very little if any effect on the fall pitchers:

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
