I've had this clone in the collection for decades, and despite years of neglect, waves of disease pressure from the environment, and raccoons literally dragging these plants into the bushes a few years back, they survived the test of time! Regretfully, the same can't be said about the population of plants these came from in the wild: they're completely gone in Mobile County, AL Mobile's population growth rate for the past decade was really big, but I suspect the site was destroyed in the early 2000's, right before a big expansion in development occurred. So sad, the small sample of genetics I have in the collection are incredibly diverse, could only imagine what the plants in the wild looked like prior to being destroyed. Bristol told me he saw enormous, mind boggling sized fields of leucophyllas in that area a long time ago. With certainty, that doesn't exist anymore.
Here's S. rosea clone C Mobile Co, AL, a proven breeder and very cultivation friendly clone. Pics taken 11/14/20:

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
