    Sarracenia 'Adrian Slack'

    Willing to trade a division of S. 'Reptilian Rose' or S. "Wilkerson" for a Sarracenia 'Adrian Slack'.

    Sarracenia 'Adrian Slack' and Sarracenia 'Reptilian Rose' are registered cultivars, yet Sarracenia "Wilkerson" is not.

    Therefore the registered cultivars have a published description and standard photographs which other plants can be compared to, which helps to verify that you have the actual cultivar. There is, however, no cultivar, S. "Wilkerson", which basically invites fraud, or misidentification. Anyone could conceivably call any Sarracenia, S. "Wilkerson", though that might be intentionally misleading, it would be difficult to construe as fraud.

    BTW, single quotes are used to indicate a registered cultivar name. Double quotes indicate a pet name/nickname, or any other name which is not a validly registered cultivar name.

    He's referring to Sarracenia 'Leah Wilkerson' which is a registered cultivar.

    Do you know that for a fact? Maybe the plant referred to is not the cultivar, which is the point Joseph is making.

    Well he doesn't even have S. 'Leah Wilkerson' or any form of S. "Wilkerson" on his growlist so its impossible to tell...

    Bag, another thing you might want to do is change something on your grow list, the term is Cultivars not Cultivators....

    good luck finding an S. 'Adrian Slack', you'll be at it for awhile....

    Sarracenia 'Adrian Slack' is one of those plants you have to usually work your way up to. There are many on here that are looking for the same plant.

    Am I the only one that doesn't "get" it? It looks like a pretty run-of-the-mill Sarracenia to me.

    Why not just keep recreating the cross, S. flava x leucophylla until there are offspring as desirable or more than S. 'Adrian Slack'?

    Maybe I'm missing something, so somebody let me in on this: What is so dang desirable about this cultivar?
