S. flava var. rubricorpora 'solid red throat' Liberty Co, FL is a rather unique and stunning clone by itself:
But what about improving the solid red throat and upgrading it to an extreme red throat?! Yup, that's what this thread is all about!
Here's a pic of S. flava extreme red throat 'select':
And here are the results of crossing the two together! This cross wasn't easy to make, both parents are shy seed producers, so you really have to pollinate a lot of flowers to even get a few dozen seeds. On top of that, the extreme red throat parent plant is heterozygous, so there's quite a bit of segregation in the offspring: only a few produced solid red throats!
Anyways, here's the pics of the offspring, S. flava var. rubricorpora 'solid red throat' x extreme red throat 'select': photos taken 5/31/20:
Got that yellow lid, YES!!!!!
and EXTREME red throat!
These are going to be amazing when they grow up! They're like super extreme red throated plants, except the body colors up easily and the lids are yellow like the liberty Co, FL rubricorporas!

This cross was definitely slim pickins, only got 5 or 6 stunners out of it, but it was definitely worth the space and time, Einstein! I'm not a fan of the symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae on my plants, but I am definitely LICHEN this cross! Buda-boom-CH! Just look at this MF'er(mother-father, of course!), pics taken 6/21/21:
Very nice, well refined lid:
This was recently transplanted, so the body didn't color up all the way, but next year if I leave it undisturbed, I think it'll reach its fullest color potential. Nevertheless, it's still dang amazing:
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
