From what I understand, there are only two verified specimens of S. psittacina var. okefenokeensis f. luteoviridis: one from Gulf Co, FL and the other from Baldwin Co, AL. It has been reported that the site where the plant from Gulf Co, FL came from has been destroyed, but luckily, John Hummer had the foresight to preserve a division.
Fast-forward a few decades later, I've grown out some seedlings from John Hummer's original clone, which was used to describe the variety, and here they are! Unlike the regular S. psittacina var. psittacina f. viridescens clone that I have, which is painfully slow to grow, these are actually quite vigorous and fast growing. This plant is beyond rare...finding an AF psittacina is pretty hard, but finding the giant, antho-free plant is beyond impossible, until now:

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
