I wouldn't be surprised if there are multiple clones in circulation of this imposter oreophila, but without a doubt, Sarracenia in general are notorious for having extreme phenotypic variation.
Oh there for sure are. I got a nice “flava” just this year from a buddy that I’m preeeeeety sure is a hybrid. One tip off: fine pubescence on the leaf stem just above the rhizome. Common in oreo, rare in flava. It also has short, curved phyllodia and a funny pitcher shape. So either it’s some super obscure ancestral flava genetics, or it’s a hybrid. Saaaaay, who wants to buy SUPER RARE BLUE VENUS FLYTRAP ANCESTRAL FLAVA divisions? Only $100. It’s a funny joke, and you should all be laughing , but I also think it’s relevant to this thread. A significant factor in the wide spread of the ersatz oreo clone we are all talking about is its coloration, which would be exceptional for an oreo. People want to believe they have something special and rare, and would much rather conclude that a plant is a one in a million colorful oreo than a hybrid that’s made easily enough.
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
