Here's a really unique and rare variant of S. rubra ssp. rubra-check out that lid! Other than that, this clone is very typical for rubra ssp. rubra: spring and summer pitchers are normally less colorful and less plentifyl compared to the fall pitchers.
These late summer pitchers being produced now do look like the fall pitchers for whatever reason, but they're not yet as plentiful. I hadn't transplanted these in almost a decade, but last winter they were babied and now all that hard work is starting to pay off with some great looking traps~ S. rubra ssp. rubra produces very tiny plants: these traps are no more than 3-4" tall, and yes, these are mature sized!

Ignore the rubras in the foreground, left, those are some ancestrals (I think):
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!

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
