Got this one from Mike last winter. It doesn't look like his clones, but it definitely looks like the named S. 'Brunswick Beauty'. EDIT: This might be S. purp. venosa (Brunswick Red x venosa) Hmm. Unsure.
Lost all the photos of this population and lost all the plants when I moved several years ago....but I had them all backed up via seeds, so I got them started again! Here they are, as diverse as the original population! I crossed every single plant from that population with each other to capture everything.
It's been rather slow overall for purpureas this year, but a few populations have grown quite a bit. They like warmer temperatures, and it even though the whole PNW had temperatures in the 100's, the hottest it's been here was 83F! Even in the middle of summer, the average temperature this year has been around 73F, which isn't anywhere close to ideal.
Despite having so many cool days, these plants are in blasting full sun, so the soil warms up enough and I think that's the only reason why there's any significant growth. I'm using 10x20 trays for this exact reason: the shallow volume of soil means it heats up quicker. For the rest of the world where it's warm during the summers, you probably don't have to worry or think about these sort of things.

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
