Here's a yellow flowered S. psittacina, which is interesting because I have several other S. psittacina from Bay Co, FL that have similar colored traps but haven't flowered yet.
One of the more interesting aspects of this clone is that it's not anthocyanin free, and can produce red pigments. There's a couple of yellow flowered S. leucophyllas out there which are similar in the sense that they're not antho-free, and in many respects, it seems as though they developed from crossing with S. alata many generations back. Could the same thing have happened with S. psittacina, except it was crossed with another species many generations back such as S. flava? Or was the yellow flower in S. psittacina from a mutation?
Well, some food for thought. In the meantime, here's the pics!

stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

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
