This clone consistently forms nice clumps, and is a semi-dwarf. This plant has consistently been colorful in the collection for the past few years, and perhaps it maintains its best colors by not being disturbed/transplanted/divided. For all you plant breeders out there, this clone has some serious potential.
Here are some pictures of S. oreophila var. ornata 'Sand Mountain' clone A:
This is probably the reddest spring pitchers I've ever seen on this clone, and the yellow contrast on the lid is icing on the cake! summer pitchers can become even more colorful: EDIT: See below for pictures!!!

Really interesting. I have a similar S. oreophila Sand Mountain from California Carnivores that also acts as a semi-dwarf and has a similar shape. It only just hit 17 inches tall this year and I've had this plant for 10-ish years now. I do wonder why it's always been so short, sort of like a Marston Dwarf except S. oreophila.
This plant is really finicky about coloring up - the side shaded by some other S. oreophila shows practically no venation. Past years it's sometimes colored up well:
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
