The leuco x minor giant crosses yield some amazing offspring. When S. leucophylla 'Burgundy' x minor giantwas made, most of the resulting plants had your typical S. x excellens" coloration to it. Only one seedling out of the entire batch inherited the pink color from the Burgundy mother plant.
The same thing can happen when you use S. leucophylla 'red' as the mother plant-you can get some S. x excellens individuals with the same dark red color as the mother plant!
I digress...here's the photos of S. (leuco burgundy x minor giant) pink clone:
Under certain environmental conditions, you get this nice green and pink contrast, which really brings out the color:

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!

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
