My plants are about a month behind than usual at this time, but in the last few weeks they have exploded with growth. The longer than normal dormancy really benefited them this year. Here a few that are look pristine at the moment:
Flava Goldie makes its debut in my collection all the way from Germany and boy does this thing glow:
Quite the opposite of Goldie, but just as if not more stunning, my Waccamaw x Carolina atro might just be better looking than both of it’s parents. This thing is off the chain this year:
I never really paid attention to this flava until this year and you can see why I’ll be paying a lot more attention to it in the future. Such a beauty! flava “Hvy Vein”:
...and always an eye pleaser, flava ornata “Black Veins”:
One of the many beautiful babies created by @calenhall with his Georgia catesbaei cross:
Lookin great Naturenuts, those are some very well grown specimens with great color!
I've been hearin' how it's been very cold this winter out in the deep south, and I'm curious to hear how you manage your crops during: 1) tropical rain storms 2) tornados 3) extreme freezes
Hey Mike, I don't know Naturenuts technique for handling the above, but I can tell you mine. Lots of yelling, swearing and stomping.
I pretty much just cross my fingers and hope for the best and do what gotsarrs does. I worry more about the plethora of bugs that fill my pitchers up to the top causing them to rot out. I hate when it’s love bug season.

Here are some hybrids showing off their stuff. To grow Asbo is to love Asbo! Does anyone else have this weirdo of a Sarr?
Here are 2 different ‘Berry Pastry’ x “Vitner’s Treasure Mimic” seedlings that I’m going to keep a very close eye on:
Oops...how did this pic get into the mix? I guess it’s too cool not to share. Poor little froggy:
“Strawberry Shortcake” has gotten massive for me this year. I can’t wait for it to fully color up:
My three different “ ‘Leah Wilkerson’ “ clones have all put up pitchers and they all couldn’t be any more different from each other. I love two of them and the other one is going in the bin: This is the true ‘Leah Wilkerson’ we all know and love:
..the imposter Leah Wilkerson which caused a bit of drama. It’s a beautiful clone, but definitely not ‘Leah Wilkerson’. I can’t wait for it to be fully mature:
...and the hideous “Leah Wilkerson” clone that will be disposed of soon:
Here is ‘Tower of Terror’ towering over everything else in the front yard water table:
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
