Seems like this clone needs its own thread by now. I haven't yet grown Hurricane creek white AxF select clone to it's fullest potential, but it constantly sends out nice traps year after year....and then they either get scorched, or I didn't water the plant well enough during the heat wave....all sorts of excuses that don't need to be made this year because now it's performing!
S. leucophylla Hurricane creek white clone A x clone F, photos taken 7/31/16. Notice how red the petiole is below the white, it usually turns green eventually but this particular clone is very prone to producing red petioles. Perhaps we might be able to get a sport (asexual mutation) that produces traps that stay red and white like this:
In case you are wondering, those are massive cherry tomato plants in the background that I'm growing for Bog Jesus:

Spotted at Jerry Addington's! And this is a spring pitcher from our June visit - it was about 30". Jerry is understandably pretty over the moon about this clone. From what I've seen AxF is a money cross just jam-packed with quality albas.
No idea why my plant is always red, but it's pretty cool! S. leucophylla Hurricane creek white AxF select, photos taken 7/25/18. These are still summer pitchers, I don't think I've ever photographed the fall traps in their fullest glory, which are way more amazing than this! Hopefully they'll look nice this year:
An older, blemished trap, but still worth photographing, check out how white the interior is!

boggrower: the original site, before it was destroyed, had a mix of pretty much everything. HCW plants were an exception to the population. The reddish coloration in this case might be environmentally induced, I've seen HCW F and even HCW A turn red occasionally.
Some more pics of the less stunning late summer traps! pics taken 7/31/18:
This trap is a little bit deformed, but still very beautiful:
Fingers crossed for the fall traps, I've neglected this clone for so many years until recently. Got them repotted and cared for like they were baby Jesus, so as long as the weather cooperates, I'm expecting a good show. Hopefully to be continued in the near future (Septemberish)......
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
