Tahnk you Cactusdan! They probably don't get much taller than 1.5' tall around here, but I wouldn't be surprised if they could get taller. I have a rubra ancestral clone from Taylor Co, GA that only gets to about 9" max for me, but I've seen others grow the same exact clone to nearly 2' tall.
Prior to acquiring this plant, I didn't know (and/or believe) that S. rubra ancestral grew in Peach Co, GA! This is the first decent pitcher the plant has produced, and I must say it is definitely very unique and different from any other ancestral I've ever seen. It's quite a vigorous grower too, and almost looks a little "jonesii" to me, moreso than the other populations that look like gulfensis ancestors:
The way the red shows in the lid in this pic and several others reminds me of the red lid alatas, but I guess that’s pretty far from alata territory.
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
