The wizard himself Jerry Addington created this monster and this is my first fall growing it (scored a division about a year ago). It produces large, tall, wide traps with an incredible reddish black suffusion (lol looks like it inherited the red-black thing from 9501...9501 by the way is a killer clone from Rob at Botanique).
S. alata is notorious for being particularly susceptible to "fake tan," that is, acquiring extreme dark colors under plastic that can't be replicated outdoors. It was very impressive growing in Jerry's greenhouse, but I was skeptical it would look anywhere near as good outdoors. Well I needn't have worried.

It has to be seen to be appreciated - it's a gorgeous look. Here's a side shot, which also shows the deep lip spout. Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr

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
