The veinless plant next to the plant that I collected seed from. Just transplanted 200 seedlings yesterday, about 500 more to go. several looked like AF, so I assume these are the veinless. I will be able to tell when they get a bit larger. This veinless plant is the first I know from the New Jersey Pinelands, from Burlington County. If anyone has info that there are others, perhaps we can trade seed or pollen this coming growing season.
And an extra special treat...The first known AF purp from the New Jersey Pinelands, Ocean County. Again, if anyone else knows of NJ heterophylla, I would love to get a breeding project going.
Jason... That is very cool indeed. If you have a opulent of extra seedling tat you would like trade... Please keep me in mind. Believe or not I'm unable to grow Ontario purps, including our veinless form outside here in my conditions in my part of Ontario. I think my soil gets too hot in my bogs in the summer and they pooch out. Sad to say I grow no Canadian purps. I do have purps from Delaware that grow like crazy. Maybe stock from a more southern climate may do better for me. LMK again thanks for sharing.

I have no idea what i have nor how many will survive yet. The plants are still too small. Perhaps a few months into the growing season mext year and they will start looking like something. When i know what i have, i'll be able to determine trade possibilities, which i would be interested in
I almost lost this plant many times throughout the years (from extreme neglect), but somehow, this clone has survived the test of time, so far! It used to be a big and beautiful clump, but then it shrunk down to one little growth that was barely hanging on. This year, I noticed it around early summer and placed it in full sun, so now it's starting to grow better and look a lot healthier!
The shape of this clone is incredibly unique, and being veinless is the icing on the cake! Pics taken 8/26/20:
I'm glad this plant didn't croak, that hood shape is really likeable and accentuates its tubbiness. There's just something nice about veinless purps, maybe it's the tangerine blush on an even background. How on earth do you make a plant from that far north happy in hundred-something degree weather? I'd be chomping at the bit to grow plants like this if I wasn't afraid of baking them and having to apologize to their poor crispy bodies.

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
