Most of the purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla clones in cultivation are the result of selfing an original clone. As many know, selfed Sarracenia have a very high percentage of inbreeding depression going on, even in the very first generation of selfing. As a result, a lot of the anthocyanin free plants in circulation are slow growing, very rot prone, and generally difficult to grow.
Not these! I crossed 2 genetically different heterophylla clones and got some vigorous offspring! These are easy to grow and great looking!

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
