Here's a clone that has performed well year after year. In some years, as the spring/summer pitchers begin to age, they end up having a red tinge to them. The late summer pitchers can do the same thing, although most of the times, they're just heavily veined like the traps photographed below. Of course, in a greenhouse or under other growing conditions, you'll see a wide variety of phenotypes from this exact same clone.

some new photos, taken 8/9/13. These are the late summer traps, which tend to be more colorful and ornate. Freshly opened traps seem to start off very green with some heavy veins. During late fall, traps that were produced in late summer/early fall can produce traps that are darker red in comparison to spring/summer traps. This is perhaps because of the cooler nights, and different light :

Andrew-sometimes it produces fall pitchers. I think it depends on a lot of factors. Most of my S. oreophila 'Alabama' clones won't produce these late summer pitchers, but are rather clumps of phyllodia.
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
