Extinct in the wild, these gulfensis now only exist in cultivation. The last time I visited the original site, it was near a very busy intersection, here's what it looked like. Not a single plant left:
Regretfully, I never saw what the site looked like when it had plants. Several years ago, I heard reports on the news that this general area was the 3rd fastest growing city in the US. It's incredible how these rare habitats have been ignored and plowed over with little oversight.
Here's what still exists as of today! Pretty much all of the clones can turn dark purple red under optimal conditions, and a few have produced gigantic traps in the past. Pics taken 11/4/19:

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
