For those maybe new to Sarracenia, just a quick comparison of two S. purpurea ssp purpurea plants from Ontario, Canada: a 'veinless' and an anthocyanin free heterophylla form. The fully formed leaves look very, very similar. However, when you look at the base of the plants and the newly forming leaves the difference is clear. The heterophylla form exhibits no other colour than green whatsoever due to the lack of anthocyanin production in the plant. In contrast, in 'veinless' plants the rhizome has red pigmentation. In this particular 'veinless' clone the plant's leaves become almost but not quite 100% the same solid green as the f. heterophylla (see the hint of colour on the rim of some lids) and pretty much stay that way for almost the entire season in my full day outdoor sun conditions rather than becoming infused with a reddish blush as is found in other well known clones.

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
