For sure, there are wherryis with yellow flowers, but I have yet to hear any reports on yellow flowered S. rubra ssp. gulfensis (non-AF versions), has anyone else ever seen or heard of one besides what I'm about to discuss here?
Here's the very, very weird thing about this clone: I've had a mother population of rubra gulfensis, and it has bloomed year after year, till kingdom come. NEVER has it EVER produced any yellow flowered variants, but I took lots and lots of divisions from this population over the years, and this spring, one of those divisions pushed out a yellow flower! It is not anthocyanin free. Maybe this is an asexual mutation, which I find strange because usually, you'd expect introgression to bring about these sort of unusual flower colors.
S. rubra ssp. gulfensis 'yellow flower' Okaloosa Co, FL, pics taken 5/5/21:
It smells just like a gulfensis: raspberries and light perfume! I could smell the flowers from hundreds of feet away, it was potent! REd flower variant to the right for comparison:
You can still see some anthocyanins on the sepals and stem. Even the flower has a very subtle blush of red if you look carefully (see pics above):

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
