Here's the story of an extremely endangered population in Aiken Co, SC. This population was found in an easement, and was barely hanging in there, with less than a dozen plants left. Sadly, the site was sprayed with herbicide, but the plants survived!
Who knows if these are ancestrals or some other species: whatever the case may be, this is neither a rubra rubra nor is it a gulfensis! The traps can get enormous: when I first acquired the plant, it had traps that were near 2' in height! It has since stayed small, and I've been struggling to keep the clone alive over the years, but now a few clones are in decent condition. Hopefully, I'll have some nice fall traps to share, as these traps don't even come close to show what this clone can look like!

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
