I've had this clone in the collection for decades, but never bothered to do a write up or photograph it until now! This plant originated from a site by a river that was reportedly wiped out by a hurricane many years ago. Aside from gulfensis, the site also had leucophylla, and many hybrids. Notice the "windows" or white coloration that blends into the color of the pitchers: this suggests some hybrid ancestry.
Like many other anthocyanin free clones, this one can turn quite yellow when the conditions are right and as the traps age! flowers are yellow, while the regular rubra form has red flowers.
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
