I have a Dana’s delight and it looks similar to a pink clone of leucopylla. I know my Dana’s delight is not a pink leuco though since I got it from CA Carnivores. But it got my thinking on how to tell the difference between the two plants. Any suggestions?
For me there is something in the shape of the mouth / neck area that makes it look “hybridy” to me. That said, naturally occurring pink leucos are almost certainly of hybrid origin as well, possibly even from a similar formula to Daina’s - aka rubra and / or rosea mixing in. Wild pink forms have had more generations to stabilize, which tends to dilute any shape peculiarities (although you will certainly see leucos that have more than an echo of mitchelliana / rubra / alata in them still). I bet if you crossed Daina’s back to a ”pure” leuco, most of the offspring would be indistinguishable as hybrids were they not labeled, and this is what’s been going on out in the wild for eternity.

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
