    For me, in my conditions the cultivar, Pinguicula 'Weser' has very dark maroon-red leaves. They stand out when compared to all the other Pinguicula I grow. There may be other species, hybrids, or cultivars that are a darker shade, but I have yet to have them in my collection. For a true, "pink" my vote goes to Pinguicula 'Sethos'.

    Another contender is Pinguicula jaumavensis:

    Sarracenia Northwest carries an unknown moranensis-ish hybrid they refer to as "Carnivorous Cabbage." It's normally kind of like a very large, green moranensis, but in high light grows more compactly and turns a brilliant, fluorescent pink. It stands out among all the photos of Pings I've seen (haven't seen too many in person) as "PINK!"

    Believe it or not, these are all the same clone, just raised on different light.

    I never see the Pinguicula jaumavensis before. Does it is Mexico species? What's kind of plant from top of picture?

    Yes, Pinguicula jaumavensis is a Mexican species. The five plants at the top of that photo are some of the Yucca Do plants, 1713 and 1717. See Pinguicula.org for an explanation of these.
