who is jerry addington? and if ur picking up seeds i will take some just pm me for how much
Jerry Addington is an older gentleman who owns one of the most awesome collections of Sarracenia ever. He isn't too tech savy, so he usually has someone help out with his seed lists!
He owns courting frogs nursery and you can learn more about his nursery here: courtingfrogs.com/
As for the seed list, it is one of the most exclusive and comprehensive lists of one of a kind/select crosses you will ever find. To give you an idea here are the seed lists from previous years: 2014 Seed list: sarracenia.proboards.com/post/12795/thread
Cost is usually about 7 dollars a packet plus shipping, but he usually gives free extras. When I purchased seed in 2011 he gave me free oreo seed! And then in 2013, he gave me more free seed on top of what I purchased.
Also, if you shop on ebay, I would add Jerry Addington's account, again updated by phaedra, as a "favorite seller" www.ebay.com/usr/addinjerr
Just a side note, for seeds. There are a few other seed lists you should keep an eye out for if you are looking for interesting genetics. The Pitcher Plant Project has a seed list once a year by Sarracenia Dude www.thepitcherplantproject.com/
Hope this helps! Of all the lists I think Brooks and Jerry's are the most comprehensive, and have the most interesting crosses, but this is my opinion. Hope this answers your questions! Let me or phaedra know if you have any more inquiries

To add to Jonathan Mejia, the following link is a reputable seller's eBay listings. Michael and his daughter Miranda Sprouse have nice plants, a wide selection, and they are generous with freebies, too.
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!

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
