one snap of part of the collection. On the right hand side, foreground is a container filled with East Indian Lemon Grass-makes outstanding tea. Also have a plumeria, which is a struggle to grow here in Northern California:

ericmillikin I've never seen a vft like that! Please keep us posted on its progression. If it reaches a mature size and still looks like a specter, that would be so cool. Even if it needed special care it would be worth it. I'm guessing full sun would probably turn it into a crisp in 10 minutes!
Imagine crossing it with an all-red; maybe you could get a translucent red vft.

First, something which surprised me. I was checking out s. flava ornata 'Phil's Clone' which I got from Phil. Pitchers are looking a little tired, and a fresh batch are on their way up. Imagine my surprise when I see a new pitcher that looks different from the rest. It's much more 'ornate:'
Here's an example of what I'm more used to seeing:
Can fall pitchers really be that different?!
Oddly enough, my tallest pitcher (still growing even) is s. x Daina's Delight:

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
