    Proper spelling of Sarracenia Pitcher plant names.

    Finding the correct way for spelling the scientific names of sarracenia is easy. You have Bob Z's sarracenia photos to help out, as well as the many resources through the ICPS. Just the same, I am going to list them for you (species only) to help out.

    S. alata-----variations heavily veined
    red throat
    nigrapurpurea----and so on.
    S. flava var. flava (veining in throat, a little in the hood,)
    var. cuprea (copper top)
    var. atropurpurea (all red)
    var. rubricorpora (red tube)
    var. rugelii (red throat--cut throat, etc.)
    var. ornata (heavily veined)
    var. maxima (all green-red growing points only)

    S. minor Typical
    Var. okeefenokeensis
    Red form

    S. oreophila-----red throats, heavily veined, lightly veined, green, etc.

    S. leucophylla---red tubes, white and green, etc.
    S. leucophylla (anthocyanin free)

    S. rubra ssp. rubra
    ssp. alabamensis
    ssp. wherryi
    ssp. gulfensis
    ssp. gulfensis "Green" (anthocyanin free)
    ssp. jonesii
    ssp. jonesii Heterophylla (anthocyanin free)

    S. psittacina Typical Form
    Green Rosette (anthocyanin free.)

    S. purpurea ssp. purpurea
    ssp. purpurea "Heterophylla" (anthocyanin free)
    ssp. venosa var. venosa
    venosa var. montana
    venosa var. burkii (or rosea)
    venosa var. burkii forma luteola (anthocyanin free.)

    Use this if you need to help yourself to the correct spelling. You can also view my growlist for ideas on listing your plants, and their color forms.
