Here's one of the prized red clones of minor var. okefenokeensis. Interestingly, the spring/summer pitchers are normally not colorful at all-it's mainly in the fall when the pitchers turn solid, dark red. However, this year, even the spring pitchers are producing some colors.
This clone is fast growing, and in good years, has produced gigantic traps. This year, the traps on my mother plant are about a foot and a half tall-nothing too crazy. I'm hoping it produces some giant ones in the fall.
S. minor var. okefenokeensis Ware Co, GA clone C:
I already posted this picture in another thread, but this really gives you an idea of how red this clone is compared to others under the same exact conditions (clone C is in the lower right hand corner):

some new photos of S. minor var. okefenokeensis Ware Co, GA clone C, taken 5/25/13. It doesn't always produce red spring pitchers (they're usually a lot more red in the fall), but this year, they're red again:
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

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
