Here's an interesting result-I crossed two different S. flava var. rubricorporas from Liberty Co, FL, and the offspring were, for the most part, rubricorporas. However, I had a few that turned out to be what is by definition S. flava var. atropurpurea.
Even though genetically we know they came from rubricorporas, conventional naming would label these atropurpureas.
Unlike other rubricorporas, which will start with yellow lids that turn solid red, the pitchers on this clone are solid red right when the trap opens. In any case, it's a pretty amazing plant:

same clone, photos taken 5/15/14. Plant has since become a lot darker, but I haven't been able to take a good picture of it because we haven't had any partly cloudy days. Red plants are hard to photograph with all the glare in bright light:
Way to keep the threads on these interesting clones going meizzwang! My RED has three buds and a strong pitcher crop emerging right now. It looked good last year but I'm hoping it will be downright KILLA in about a month or so. Will post pics soon!
Eric: they're usually bright red for me, you been feedin them traps some chocolate milk? J/K That's an unknown clone that I acquired more than a decade ago, no location data, no clonal name, no nuthin, but it performed well and produces deep red pitchers here in California, so I decided to propagate it. That brown color is very unusual.
Calen:R you talking about the same RED clone above from Liberty Co, FL? In any case, it'll be really interesting to see how it performs in Oregon. Sounds like your plant is now FADDA than my mutha plant!
Indeed Señor meizzwang it is the same plant! I think you had just one spare divvy a couple years back and I snatched dat s*** up! Been a good grower and great color. I foresee it being solid red under OR conditions too.
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
