    Hey Folks,

    I've had the pleasure of seeing S. purpurea in the wild at two NC sites (including the type location) and (AFAIK) the only GA site and the only SC site, and I'll readily admit that I sure as Kadath couldn't be sure I could differentiate these purps from ones I've seen in coastal NC, NJ, VA, or elsewhere on the Atlantic Coastal Plain. Only the plants at the type site had the curled-in hood.

    IMHO.

    I have learned from a reliable and very trusted source that Tom's Swamp is not in NC. So this means that I was wrong about the form I am growing and the TC clone. However, since the tag on my plant says NC and since it came from someone I figured would know I took it on faith that they were right. It seems I need to check back with them about where Tom's Swamp actually is. So, not fully my fault but I take responsibility for my screw up. And I have no clue now where Tom's Swamp is.

    Here is a picture of the S. purpurea ssp. venosa var montana I have been growing for the past four years. As Homer stated, it came from the same location.

    That's the typical var. montana you see about - lovely stripey pitchers and enclosed hood.

    Barry's reasoning for the above being var. montana is because it's slap bang in the range for the variety. Maybe there are typical venosas mixed in, in certain bogs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Hey Folks,

    My photos of Sarracenia purpurea var. montana are all on line at:
    http://www.sarracenia.com/galleria/g261.html

    FWIW, the images of the GA plants are all from the only GA location, the images noted as "NC I" through NC VII" are all from one NC site, "NC VIII" and "NC IX" are from the "type" NC location, and "SC 1" through "SC VI" are all from the only SC location for the species.

    These are field photos, so the IDs are good. For my money, the Georgia plants are very pretty.

    I'd be hesitant to identify this taxon based on the nature of the venation, alone, as you can see in the photos. Even the candy-cane type venation as seen in the GA plants are expressed in plants from other locations, such as ones from the Virginia coastal plain (one such photo can be seen on the link given above).
