Here's another purple throat clone that is quite interesting. With other clones that I've seen, especially the "sand mountain" variants, they seem pretty timid in terms of producing a solid red throat. However, under the right environmental conditions, they produce some amazing colors, and the entire pitcher can turn reddish with dark red veins.
From what I've seen so far, this purple throat clone (MKO12) seems to readily produce a red throat when most of the other plants are still not so colorful. I believe, with this clone, the prominent red throat characteristics is stongly genetics with a dash of environmental influence. In other words, I suspect it's not too difficult to coax this plant to produce a red throat unlike with many other spectacular color forms of S. oreophila. Only time will tell:
S. oreophila MKO12, just starting to get a red throat near the end of June, 2013. Looks mostly veiny right now:
Same exact pitcher:

stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

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
