A few shots of many different clones from Washington Co, AL These are unique in the sense that they tend to produce pitchers 1-2 weeks earlier than most other leucophylla populations. They also produce nice spring and summer traps!
After crossing many different clones from this genetically diverse population and growing out some of the seedlings (ie. doing a population increase), several very interesting "new" clones are showing up! Besides punto blanco: sarracenia.proboards.com/thread/5208/leucophylla-alba-punto-blanco-washington there's another one that caught my eye, and here it is! No clue how this will turn out later on, but it looks promising:
check out the taller, reddish trap just opening to the left, background: it's the same clone!!!
Took some divisions from my mother populations for the first time in probably close to 10 years, and now they've been given the appropriate spacing/light to produce nice looking traps. Even though these are the boring summer traps, they're still rather interesting! Pics taken 7/23/21:
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
