Here's a really neat clone of S. alabamensis from Chilton Co, AL. Clones from this population differ from other populations in the sense that they tend to have wide mouths. At a quick glance, they almost look like an alata or wherryi...
some new photos, taken 7/2/15. I was watering this morning and for whatever reason, this plant stood out, and I thought to myself, GOSH, I really like this clone! After snapping a couple of pictures, I put it down and then as I was walking away...CRUNCH! Yup, stepped on some traps. Indeed, that's no way to treat an endangered species, but hey, it'll live....
Finally got my hands on one of the original clones that came from the site before it was destroyed a long time ago. What's really interesting about this clone is that it can get absolutely gigantic, traps were observed to be around 2.5' in height! The fact that it turns lemon yellow is another plus! Hopefully, there will be some showy fall traps, and if so, I'll post them. For now, here are some less significant summer traps, pics taken 7/13/21:
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
