Here's a super rare genotype that hails from North Carolina, and it comes from the same population as S. flava 'lemon yellow':https://sarracenia.proboards.com/thread/4535/flava-var-lemon-yellow-brunswick there are so many gems in this population, it's almost unbelievable! According to our resident flava expert almightydolla, red throated flavas are extremely uncommon and rarely seen in this region.
Is this a rugelii, a flava var. flava, or something else? This clone is very elusive and at times produces 100% flava var. flava looking traps. Personally, I think it's a S. flava 'dark red throat' which beats around the bush and simplifies the whole nomenclature shenanigans: for horticultural purposes, this clone looks best with that dark red throat, so that's what I'm calling it!
Whatever it is, the clone has a very thin neck and flava var. flava veining on the interior, with a dark red throat slapped on top of that! Unlike regular flava rugeliis, where the red throat stays red, as the traps age, that red coloration in the throat can get dark to almost black! The lid can turn very yellow, and I bet with the right conditions, it can get even more yellow, we'll see! This clone was recently transplanted last winter, so it can probably color up even more.

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
