Just submitted Sarracenia 'Ellie Wang' to the ICPS for registering, this will be the very first cultivar I've ever registered if successful. Me? Sweating it? Nope, it's just hot in here, and the doctor told me the shaking is genetic and will go away. I didn't pee in my pants, just went swimming and still wearing swimming trunks. Why am I constantly defending myself and bringing up random things people wouldn't otherwise question when nobody is questioning me? Hey, just relax, don't worry about it.
It's been a long time since I've been in school, so hopefully the cultivar description write up doesn't get returned with some red marks on it. It went through rigorous revisions: mainly, I had to take out the profanity, but other than that, the description is professional and lacking thug-like diction. Wearing a suite and tie every day for work is one thing, but cleaning up my act for something as serious as the ICPS official registration....ladies and gentlemen, that's a different ball game!
If you read all this nonsense above, ask yourself why? (MW scratches his head) No idea what you're thinking, I'm just here to see pictures! New pics of Ellie Wang, photos taken 5/29/18:
Raspberry RED baby!!!
Brown Chicken, Brown Cow! Had to take those words out of the official description:
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
