Here's another clone from Baldwin Co, AL that produces beautiful tall pitchers and sorta roundish, symmetrical traps. It overall has a standard look for leucophylla in general, but this particular individual produces both nice spring and fall traps. Speaking of fall traps, S. leucophylla usually spits out 1-2 traps per growth point and then goes dormant. This clone, on the other hand, seems to have produced a first flush of fall traps, and it's still going strong with another set! Perhaps this individual will consistently produce a lot more traps during the fall than your average plant. In any case, this has great breeding potential!

Here's the second flush of pitchers!

S. leucophylla 'puffy cheeks' is lookin pretty beautiful this year! It's a very vigorous plant that doesn't mind producing some side shoots or divisions, and it appears to perform consistently so far! Photos taken 9/21/17:

Puffy Cheeks consistently performs year after year. What's interesting is I have thousands of clones of leucophylla from Baldwin Co, AL, but so few are easy to grow like this clone. A lot of them are really picky and need just the right amount of TLC or else they won't push out nice fall traps. Puffy Cheeks, on the other hand, was completely neglected this year (ie. overgrown by neighboring plants, not trimmed, etc) mostly because I lost track of where the pots were, but then this forgiving clone shot out some outstanding fall pitchers!

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
