Hi friends, here's a cool flava I thought you guys would appreciate! I was in a hurry to pick some plants to take home with me from Lois Ochs's collection, so I pulled this one out and though eh looks kinda yellow. Otherwise, not a very striking plant at first glance. Man am I glad I grabbed it though. Lois says its from some McCllellanville flava seed she and Peter rescued from someone in Sata Cruz. As I said, I didn't think much of the plant when I first saw it, but this morning, I finally got to blasting off the thrips and old peat with a hose and that's when I noticed how remarkable this plant actually is. I know the pitchers look a little sad (thanks CA heat), but just look at the shape and color of these tubes!!!!

Little update to this post for the haters
I have another McClellanville SC maxima called clone A (Also from Lois). It took a while to establish, but now that it's producing pitchers again the odd downturned peristome sides and upturned front are also apparent on these small tubes!

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
