Some shots taken yesterday 4/28. The days have been coolish but it hasn't stopped the flavas from going crazy. We are heading into a stretch of warm temps to start May and I foresee the leucos following suit the minute they get that extra warmth. My new yard has a lot more sun than my previous setup. The plants are at 8.5-9 hours of direct light as of now, and it should be 10+ in mid-summer. Pumped! leucos and mooreis flava cuprea "Best Clone" - it may not be "Copper Body" but it's still got some tricks up its sleeve! [a href="[/a] moorei "Hot Lips" from philcula Many of Phil's clones are currently putting out very robust pitchers for me flava ornata "Black Veins" Bulloch Co GA Clone B looking way more colorful pre-opening than it ever did in CA Flava seedlings B-52 bowl is awake and trappin Gorgeous big flower on (cuprea x rubricorpora)
I generally "embrace the chaos" with open pollinating and a single brush covered in pollen from many many flowers.....but this year I am imprisoning a few for specific crosses....mesh bags are making a bold fashion statement in the garden this year....
I like how you think Yosemite, you've got a lot of creativity! Thanks for sharing the pics 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!

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
