Just wanted to start a thread with photos of the FLS rubras. I toured a bog in November 2018 in Taylor County. The site is just a fragment of it's former size as can be seen from aerial photos. A few years ago the state finally began controlled burns so it is slowly recovering. Most of the plants were seedlings.
The darkest coloration on the plants we saw:
They don't call them sandhills for nothin'. Getting to the bog requires driving on dry shifty sand and steep inclines.
Then comes a descent down through a bay swamp.
At the bottom of the hill is a seepage stream. The Sarracenia grow in the Sphagnum right along the water margin.
No Pinguicula primuliflora this trip, even though it has been seen here. It was late in the year and the ground was freshly littered with detritus.
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
