Flava Red : the SFA-008 JPR. "A large clone of flava entirely cherry red in season". It is slender, with a nice, well-shaped pitcher, green-yellow interior at the opening, turning to yellow, the exterior turning to "cherry red" as the season progresses => It's a very beautiful plant.
Trio of S. flava var.ornata against the light & in the light:
• F276 MK ‘Pocohontas’. US cultivar from Meadowview, with its "rugelii" spot just under the lid and its delicate stripes. • F77/1 M. Srba whose veins become very strong as well as the peristome. • F185 MK ; Prince George Co. VA. whose vertical veins bring nobility to the plant.
The 167A MK Var. rubricorpora "Sumatra, Apalachicola National Forest, FL. (WS). Large, stocky deep maroon pitchers" is a Sarracenia "Picasso": it presents itself from the front and from the side simultaneously… I'm kidding of course => it's a related artifact hail when the pitcher was growing. It is a large plant in size and very dark for the shade of red / purple, including the inside of the pitcher => we are flirting between atropurpurea and rubricorpora because we are only at the beginning of the season. Young pitcher, secretion of nectar under the lid & adult picher.
Bumblebee on Oreophila O7 MK "Very heavily veined, Sand Hills, AL". With the sunny weather in recent weeks, the 1st pitcher which has changed from green to orange, turns red => a real pleasure for the eyes.
A spectacular side for this F8 MK flava "Copper top, Green Swamp, NC. W. Plant is an intergrade from with var. Maxima so the plant has a pure green tube with a veinless copper top" => the veins remain yellow-green while the cover is delicately tinged with copper in the sun.
The F25c MK "The other famous red tube described in Adrian Slack's 2nd book. This particular plant clone came from Mike Brooks who received it off Adrian Slack himself". Not much to say about this surprising plant ... The pictures speak for themselves ...
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
