Hi Mike, thank you. About PW cultivar, was submitted at ICPS last year, these are one of the firsts photo of this plant. this is what PW said:
It's a cross between S. rubra ssp jonesii and a NC form of S. flava var. atropurpurea. The cross was made for me by Phil Sheridan after I saw a plant of the same parentage in his nursery in Virginia.
I selected this clone for it's intense red colour and also because the nectar is produced in profuse amounts in the pitcher throat, which makes it look as if it's almost sweating, though of course Blood Sweat and Tears also refers to a band from the 60's! We are hoping to make the first propagations of this plant available later in the year after publication. The intense red colour is darkest in the pitcher throat but extends almost all the way down the pitcher tube. The pitchers are about mid-size between those of both and retain some of the slenderness of the jonesii parent. ----
I am honored to cultivate this plant, it's very particular in my opinion.Pitchers produces lots of nectar, as if she's sweating! the intense red color, surrounded by black veins, is very nice. this is only the first year that I grow this plant, surely next will be much more intensely colored. Ciao!
Here's something interesting that I finally was able to capture a photo of. For the past few weeks, in the evening, I noticed a hummingbird was frequently visiting the collection, and I noticed it was drinking nectar from the Sarracenias! Every time I wanted to take a picture, it would fly away instantly, but this time, I hid behind one of my s. flava rugelii tubs, haha
The hummingbird tends to only visit S. flava and its variants, which make sense because that plant has the most significant nectar production:

and just for the heck of it, here's some more montanas:

Nico-Very nice plants. I really like your flava rubricorpora.
Mike-Montanas look great as usual.
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
