Here's an interesting S. purpurea ssp. purpurea from Fort Nelson, BC. This is from the western most location for S. purpurea ssp. purpurea. Notice that this plant is not anthocyanin free, but for the most part, the pitchers are greenish with a little bronze undertone to them, depending on the environment.
Thanks Phil! I got it through a trade from a friend of mine...no helicopter involved
Carl- Ah, that is correct...thanks for pointing that out. Maybethe western most location though? I've heard they don't go any further west than British Columbia, but there could be a location more west than Fort Nelson... I have no idea what the habitat is like...just got it labeled as such!

Jason... I'd love to hear more about the veinless plant you found in NJ. Can you post photos. Was it an isolated occurrence? We're there AF plants around. We're there plants of variable amounts of veination in the area?

All of the plants around them were very normal. No AF, and no other veinless. The plant had flowered but the flower aborted. There was a plant less than 2 feet away that produced seed which i harvested. Some of the seedlings look veinless. They are very small though, and may still die, but i am trying my best. Undortunately, the photos i had of the plant on my phone were all deleted yesteday. I have to get them off of my computer to post here, and my computer is all the way downstairs When i get back to it, i'll post a pick.
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
