Here's an old hybrid-I think I remember reading that Adrian Slack(the man) mentioned he didn't think this hybrid was worth a cultivar status. Bear in mind, when you breed and collect plants for as long as he did, you become more "selective."
In any case, I still think this hybrid is spectacular! Here's a S. x umlauftiana grown by California Carnivores:

While it's not a clone or a hybrid, all of the plants I've seen of this cross seem to be very similar in shape and color. Does the wide, white, shovel-like hood just breed true for this cross, or are most of these selected from one or a few old plants?
Without question, for me the stand out and repeatable feature of this plant is the two thick red lines that run from wide on the tube under the peristome then converge further down the tube at the ala in a V shape. I really like that.
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

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
