Here's a neat clone of S. alata f. viridescens (anthocyanin free) from Washington Co, AL. I was informed this came from a site that is now heavily shaded by surrounding vegetation, and if there isn't a burn or clearing, the original plant will likely perish. Unfortunately, in the wild, a clearing usually involves bulldozers, which scrape away all the plants and top layer of soil. These destroyed habitats are generally cleared to plant pines.
Fortunately, this plant has made its way around the globe, so at least the genes will live on! Traps can become lemon yellow under optimal conditions:

And, while I haven't been there personally to check, the site where it was found may be within the boundaries of the road construction Jim Miller witnessed on his last trip there, which -- in his words -- decimated the CP for miles. This plant was found within sight/sound of a state highway (I have old habitat shots of the site with big-rig trucks in the background).
I hope that the site survives. If not, I'm glad that so many incredible Sarracenia clones -- both species and hybrids -- are now safe in cultivation.
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
