The AF luteola we have in cultivation today originally came from this population in Southern Baldwin Co, AL. The population as a whole is very diverse, and overall seems to be more disease resistant than any other roseas we have in the collection from various different counties. Vigor-wise, it grows just as fast as any other rosea population, and many plants seem to exhibit excellent green and red color contrasts on newly opened traps. However, once the leaf has fully matured, many clones seem to turn solid pink or reddish, but it's still too early to tell if that's the case for every single plant.
Some photos, taken 6/20/16. This color combo in the photo below is what I'm talking about:
Some are over-crowded in community trays hence the greener color:
Some new pics of S. rosea Southern Baldwin Co, AL. These haven't colored up yet, but they usually do for us in the fall to early winter. I think they'll probably color up better if they're in full sun, but these are being shaded by the surrounding plants....plus, they haven't been transplanted in years! ooops....
Some updated pics. Some of these are giants when you really take good care of them, but I've neglected these mother plants for many years now. They'll be divided this winter so I should have more available next summer or fall. These plants were shaded this year, so they're not as colorful as they can be, but they're still worth looking at!

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
