First strong killing frost hit my plants today, got down to upper 20s with colder air tonight. When letting the dog out this morning I picked this pitcher from the in ground bog to observe the striking difference in coloration depending on the amount of sunlight. The pitcher had fallen over months ago and I just let it lay there the rest of the season.

I shared these on my IG, but I figured I would share them here for some of you that might appreciate them. And yes that is a sheet of 1/4" ice in the first two. The third is just, well hell they're sarracenia😀
Well, it's mid November and the growing season has either ended already or quickly coming to an end depending on where you live. Most of my plants still have a few fall pitchers hanging in there although they are starting to desiccate, but I also have a few plants putting up fresh pitchers. I took these photos this afternoon. Most likely I'll have to wait until early spring before seeing any more new growth.
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
