I don't think the photos online do this subspecies justice, so here are some pics that do! I took these photos years ago, lost them, and just found them! Figured these would be worth adding to the photo-library.
They're pretty easy to grow: I use 100% peat and feed them regularly during the grow season with maxsea 16-16-16, about 3/4 strength. They are soil fertilized. As soon as the flower bud is maybe a few days from opening, I stop fertilizing completely. These probably can sit in water if you have taller pots, but I don't allow them to ever sit in water, as the roots rot easily for me. Just like carnivorous plants, these need DI or reverse osmosis water for best results.
I can't remember, but I think these flowers might be slightly fragrant! Lilium pardalinum ssp. volmeri:
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
