While I enjoy growing all different species of sarracenia, I'm probably in the minority of growers in that leucophylla is at the bottom of my list. That said, here are some pictures of a few of my leucs.
Fuzzy pink spout mouth, from Calen. My phone camera doesn't do the pink justice.
Here is another one I got from Calen, labeled as South Alabama RED.
From the other side.
Alata nigrapurpurea, MK A58. This was a fresh division this year and just started putting out some darker pitchers.
This AF minor is one of my favorites in my collection. I feel like I put at least one picture of this in every monthly thread.
This alabamensis has a subtle charm to it.
I can never seem to get a good picture of any of my rubras. Here is the second of two ssp rubra clones from Onslow Co, NC
A bit of a confession, those pictures were all taken Monday, which was technically September. This one is from this morning. For me, winter is not too far off. This is a Franklin Co, FL psitt.
Looking great everybody! summit great job with CCs Monster! Man, that is such a beefcake plant! I wish it would pitcher here but def seems like one of those leucos that needs a longer, warmer season. I'm jealous!
Slowly but surely the leucos have gotten their traps up in the last bit of warmth. It's turned out to be a really good leuco year by Oregon standards and I'm pumped! A few shots: Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr Untitled by Calen Hall, on Flickr
Nothing to crazy going on this time of the year in my collection. I did however pick up Purple Lips earlier this season and finally got a pitcher out of it! Freshly opened and I see why everyone loves this clone.

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
