A few shots from my collection. Some of these pictures were taken in late April but oh well...
First up: 4 nice S. flava clones from Josh Lynch at CP Connection. The rubricorpora is a Mike Wang invention and is showing a bit of color drop from division/bare rooting - should be even better next season!
Here's another shot of the LW5. It's more of a gulf coast ornata - purple lip and neon yellow lid!
S. minor - a nice little seedling already forming a nice clump:
S. purpurea ssp. venosa ('Red Ruffles' x 'other') A nice red purp - scooped this up at California Carnivores last year - one year away from blooming??
Last but not least: S. oreophila (UCB x Sand Mt.) seed grown from CCs and showing some outstanding colors:
Thanks for the info Mike! Yes it definitely has that gulf coast rubricorpora mutt look to it! Do you know anything more about the clone? N. Walton Co - that's where the Wilkerson bog is if I'm not mistaken? Always interested to learn more about a plant's history.
Sure thing! I don't know much about that particular clone, although I might have a piece of it, haha I'm guessing CP connection gave it the clonal name LW5. The clone I have looks more like a moorei back crossed with flava rugelii several times to the point that you can barely tell moorei was there.
In Southern Walton Co, FL, there's a ton of S. flava var. ornatas, but I believe these originated from back-crossing S. flava var. rubricopora with S. flava var. rugelii. Hard to say...these are all just educated guesses based on what's around there.
There are two "wilkerson" bogs-one that was owned by Bud Wilkerson and another owned by Leah Wilkerson.
Keep those photos coming! You guys are doing a great job!!
Below are some photos taken 5/11/13:
S. minor var. okefenokeensis Ware Co, GA. They got giant again this year! They're not as big as they have been in previous years, but nevertheless, they are gigantic.
S. montana Transylvania Co, NC, I think this is clone K:
Other growers have commented S. purpureas really get set back after they flower. I've personally struggled with this with my S. purpurea ssp. purpurea's. Montanas can also do the same thing, and while they do get set back from flowering, they usually make up for lost growth in the late summer/early fall. Purp. purp's, on the other hand, go dormant at that time, so the year after flowering, they tend to shrink-it's really frustrating!
Anyhow, here's some photos of S. montana mostly from Transylvania Co, NC-notice the abundance of flower stalks this year:
Another shot of the montanas:
S. purpurea ssp. purpurea in the foreground, montanas in the background:
Tub of S. oreophila is looking great this year! A couple of clones are coloring up, but for the most part, they are still pretty green right now:
And last but not least, a coveted tray of S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla:
temperature. When it's warmer during the day and night, they get bigger. Also, if they grew well the previous year, that's important too. some of their biggest traps are the first pitchers of the season, although huge pitchers can form later in the season as well.
Yes! Finally some shots from flytraps! Under 'recommendations" I posted a link to some flickriver shots (not mine) of pitcherplant bogs in western Florida that are pretty much chock full of atropurpureas aaaand...leucophyllas. Hybrid or not, still a beautiful plant.
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
