A few shots from this afternoon. Major dog days here in PDX - mostly 90s and high 80s with some humidity. I ain't complaining though since the late season plants are loving it. September should be full of nice leucos. IMG_1654 by Calen Hall, on Flickr The tub of Splinter Hill leuco seedlings is opening its first fall traps with tons more on the way - should be a full-on hedge in a couple weeks. IMG_1648 by Calen Hall, on Flickr A very nice pink clone from the above population. The pointy lip is a stable trait and I dig it! Pitcher is only a few days old but already showing the beginning of the magenta suffusion.

Night is the height winner so far at just over 30" IMG_1666 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Night x sib is definitely in the running for color honors though IMG_1665 by Calen Hall, on Flickr Areolatas looking great! Super underrated cross - these were made with pretty "average" parents - imagine what select breeding could accomplish. IMG_1667 by Calen Hall, on Flickr IMG_1668 by Calen Hall, on Flickr

S. rubra ancestral, Marion County GA
S. rubra ancestral, Peach County GA
S. minor, Long County GA
This guy looked like a moorei a month ago, but now I'm thinking it's pure S. leucophylla
Loving the "pez neck" on this S. x catesbaei from Tate's Hell FL (which I've nicknamed "Legion")
S. flava var. ornata "red lips"
S. x 'Leah Wilkerson'
New S. x 'Smurf' pitcher, lookin' something like a weird Heliamphora
A rather late oreophila flower (the plant itself is a bundle of phyllodia)
Some weirdo hanging out on a HCW
S. leucophylla "Conecuh red"
I'm beginning to think the next two are the same plant. Wonder if cpbobby knows where "jonesii-lookalike" came from, because it's a dead ringer for the rubra ssp. gulfensis (int. leuc) "maroon giant" I got from Bruce Lee Bednar.
alabamensis: if it looked suspicious before, I'd hesitate to give it a label. I've got moorei x leucoo that look like basically pure leuco...and that weird bug is an ambush bug, they sit on my flowers and kill honeybees.
Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.
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: I am planning on doing an order from Mike... and I’m on a budget, some of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made

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
