    This variety is real all right. Been growing it for a few years now. Very lovely plant.

    Check out the ICPS website under conservation initiatives for some info on preservation.

    Finch, correctly put, it would be:
    Sarracenia purpurea var. venosa forma montana

    The Georgia form is less desirable than the North/South Carolina form. The Carolina form has a very tightly rolled hood, and the
    Georgia Form is about half and half on the hood structure, which gives this plant a very distinctive look. Go to Google, type in sarracenia photos, enter BobZ's site, and look up the form. Check the differences in the two locations, Carolina vs. Georgia. The Carolinans have the best form, IMO.

    I thought it was S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. montana.

    As Bugweed says, it is identifiable by its tight triangular shaped hood.

    I don't know, my NC form isn't all that stunning. I would really like a GA form
