Here's an interesting population of S. montana from greenville Co, SC that I know very little about...other than the fact that these plants are starting to look pretty amazing! The shape on some of these are much longer than other genotypes I've grown in the past. I will know more about this population as the plants mature: for now, they're just tiny plantlets. And yes, I'm doing my best to propagate these: due to the relentless pressure I've been getting from multiple people, I divided tiny plants unsucessfully earlier this year which set me back a little bit, but there still should be a few available in the near future. What you're looking at are literally the biggest plants that I have of this population. Photos taken 8/7/18:
Looking forward to seeing what this one looks like as it matures:
Wow! Those are looking great. I know that county has a nice cataract bog way up the side of a steep mountain face. It's hard to get there, but it really is neat to see how on edge these plants grow. They have intensly contrasting veins, a trait that you have no doubt shown with your plants.
I live just outside of Greenville and work in Greenville. I didn’t know we had a Purpera population. I know about the Rubras. Where did it come from Mike? I
I have no clue, never been to the Carolinas, but given the extreme rarity of these plants, my guess is that the owner(s) of the land likely want to keep the specific location private.
Here's some updated pics of S. montana greenville Co, SC and Jackson Co, NC. These are my mother plants that I'll be keeping for long term preservation, but I will divide as many plants as possible this winter and hopefully have enough to go around in 2019. I have very limited stock available now. Photos taken 9/24/18:

These are the actual divisions that have been going into circulation, and they look better than my mother plants, at least color-wise! A few clones from this population have those folded lids (not sure if you can see them in these pics). Photos taken 11/13/20:
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
