Here's a very interesting clone that originated from a location near the extirpated radiotower site in Okaloosa Co, Fl. Just like plants from the radiotower site, unfortunately, clone K and its relatives only exist in cultivation: the bog these plants came from are now homes, businesses, uninhabitable drainage ditches, and a dense forest. As an aside, Anytime the hydrology or topography of the land is altered, it also can also drastically change the ecosystem. This is why oreophilas are endangered: the land was altered so drastically that their open, boggy habitats turned into thick, dense forests, which means they eventually got shaded out and died from a lack of light. Trees grow super fast in the deep south, so the second you mess with the land, even if the site isn't directly bulldozed, it can still disappear!
On a much lighter note, S. rubra ssp. gulfensis clone K Okaloosa Co FL not only has great coloration, but it also has a really, really funky shape to it! It's like the body is puffy or slightly bulbous while the "head" is kinda small! love the weirdos.
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
