The absolute most impressive tattnall Co, GA purp. venosa I've ever seen in cultivation! At first, I didn't believe it, but after taking a close look at the traps, I recognized the clone. Hats off to Jimmy Conner for his accomplishment, pretty darn unbelievable!!!
They keep shrinking, but still look pretty decent! These genetics are probably in the hands of hundreds of people by now, such a good variant! Also noteworthy, in case I haven't mentioned it already, is that this is the most disease resistant purpurea I've ever grown. Pic taken 7/30/18:
Some new pics! Even though these are last year's traps, they're still pretty amazing! This time around, I divided only the absolute best looking clones from the population, and I expect to have divisions from these probably by the end of the grow season this year.
Very nice Rick! That clump is getting enormous! I've been meaning to ask you, which might be slightly off topic and probably described elsewhere on this forum, but can you explain your over-wintering method? Clearly, whatever you're doing works very well.
Here are some elite divisions from the Tattnall Co, GA population. Pics taken mostly on 10/18/20:
This is the tray of elite mother plants. From now on, divisions will only come from these:
There's one tubby clone that produced some pretty round traps this year and a few of you guys got lucky and acquired it recently. It hasn't really colored up for me this year, but if it does, I'll try to snap some pics of it. Previous shots of it in this thread aren't as showy shape-wise compared to this year's growth!
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
