Well, it should be called S. leucophylla var. alba yellow flower 'spring white' Washington Co, AL, but of course, there isn't enough room in the subject line to type all of those shenanigans.
"So Mike Wang, tell me what's so special about this clone, and why do you keep bragging about how it's such a great plant but then don't have any pictures for me to confirm that you're not full of crap?" Thankfully, nobody has said that out loud to me yet, but there's probably a few people who thought it, so I figured it's time to write up this thread!
Out of the many leuco alba clones, this plant consistently produces beautiful, white spring traps year after year! This is the clone that I think should be tested in cooler climates because the spring traps emerge outdoors in Northern California even when it's on the cooler side! In contrast, many other clones won't perform as well unless the weather in the spring is on the warmer side. So why doesn't MW have pics of the spring traps this year? Well ladies and gentlemen/plant NurDZ, I do have a good excuse: this plant pushed out 4 fattie flowers this spring, and I pollinated them all!
S. leucophylla var. alba yellow flower 'spring white' Washington Co, AL has never produced very bright white traps like the ones pictured below until now, it actually comes as a shock! what isn't so shocking is how small these late summer pitchers are, considering how much energy is going into the seed pods.

Hopefully, there will be some nice fall traps this year to photograph, I suppose we'll see!
There's a reason this clone is called spring white: spring traps can be pretty white! This is actually a really nice clone and can produce some impressive traps, but I'll be the first to admit, it's been neglected and shaded by surrounding plants. Maybe this winter I'll repot it and take better care of it. Photos taken 5/30/19:

Some fall traps on S. leucophylla var. alba yellow flower 'spring white' washington Co, AL. Dang, that name is ridiculously long, but couldn't think of anything else to add to the name to make it longer, sorry guys!
Pics taken 9/21/19, gonna divide this plant in a few weeks. I don't this one has been released to the public yet, can't remember:
some fall white pitchers:
bunch of different clones in this pic, but spring white sorta sticks out of the crowd:
Some pics to add to the library. This clone hasn't been transplanted in years, and for whatever reason, once I put them into fresh media this year, they got really white! Makes you wonder how white will the fall traps be?! Pics taken 7/19/20:

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.

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!
