Plants for the raffle drawing -- I see lots of weeds....
Below are pictures of my haul. Let me preface this by saying that I don't play around when I shop. Without further ado, it is time to drool
I love the tall, dark, and beautiful ones so had to get a few.
I was only semi-cognizant of what I placed in the shopping cart. And I might have went a wee bit over board at Phil's table . When I checked my haul at home, I was pleasantly surprised.
First up, the mooreis S. x moorei "Super Heavy Veins" - a honkin division!
S. x moorei "Purple Sparks"
S. x moorei Phil's clone 1-A
S. x moorei Phil's clone 1-C - I do believe that both of these are divisions from the same plant, clone 1. After going over the sale plants a half dozen times, being regaled by Phil's stories, and starved for the entire day, plants were simply piling themselves into the cart, lol. An absolutely lovely clone, so who am I to complain?
S. x moorei Phil's clone 2
S. x moorei Phil's clone 4
S. x moorei 'Hot Lips' - OMG, how did this make it into my cart? I don't even remember adding this
Some of Phil's hybrids S. x ( Readii x Royal Ruby) clone 2
S. x (x moorei 'Leah Wilkerson') x (x leucophylla "Hot Lips") - On a table full of red mooreis, this one was very prominent. What a looker!! I am hoping for this one to be as vigorous and gigantic as its parents.
S. x 'Stingray'
S. x ('Reptilian Rose' x leucophylla pale) #1
S. x ('Reptilian Rose' x leucophylla purple lips) - I was looking for this select clone and unbeknownst to myself, it was already in my cart. I scare myself some times.
And the infamous S. flava "killer" - Yes people, the lid on this plant is f*cking ginormous
Some plants from meizzwang S. flava var. ornata (Gulf Coast, FL)
S. flava var. atropurpurea (European clone - Kew Gardens)
S. flava var. ornata improved - yes, I would say so myself that this ornata is definitely an improved version. Somehow I ended up with two plants. I am uncertain if these are the same clone.
S. leucophylla giant (Washington Co, AL) - It will be a few years before this achieves giant status
S. x moorei "Dan Winter"
S. jonesii black lips (Greenville Co, SC)
S. flava var. rugelli giant (Thomas Co, GA)
S. flava var. ornata super improved black veins - Damn, look at those veins!!! Great job meizzwang , this is excellent breeding stock.
S. leucophylla hurricane white creek clone E - Don't mind the decapitation. The bay area has been going through a heat wave.
S. flava var. rubricorpora "solid red throat" (Liberty Co, FL)
S. leucophylla "juju lips"
S. x moorei "Wilkerson's White Knight"
S. flava "extreme red throat"
S. oreophila (UCB x MO17) select clone
S. flava var. rubricorpora (Lxbest) select dark clone (Liberty Co, FL)
S. psittacina var. okefenokeensis f. luteoviridis (Gulf Co, FL)
S. x moorei "Wilkerson's Red Rocket"
S. flava var. rubricorpora (burgundy x L)
Group shot of the newbies
My god that was a lot of pics to post and if not for some libation, I would have never made it through. I hope you enjoyed them!
pokie22 , thanks for buying a lot of the coolest stuff before I arrived at the show so I wouldn't empty my wallet .
Thanks for the beautiful pictures and congratulations on all the cool plants you bought.
I did manage to pick up the S. flava Extreme Red Throat and S. flava rubricorpora Bay Co, FL you have in your pictures. That red patch on the throat is gloriously obscene, and I love the rust red color contrast with the rubricorpora.
When I left the show around 2 PM, someone was just arriving, and I overheard, "All the good stuff is probably gone." .
I was at the show and sale for the entire duration, and then some. I spent the majority of my time in front of Phil's table chatting with other attendees and enjoying the plants. 7rider, many of Phil's plants were still on the table at 1pm and I was adding more to my pile. As far as I can remember, the other S. flava "killer", "purple sparks", 'Stingray', 'Saxapaw', ...etc were still on that table at noon. Albeit, going fast. In fact, I helped a nice gentleman locate the other "purple sparks" for sale. At the end of the show, there were still a few nice moorei clones and Saxapaws. Regarding Mike's plants, those were a pre-order that he brought to the sale for me. It does pay to shop in earnest.
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
