    all manner of threadleaf sundews.


    Over the past 5 years I have raised a reseeding population of native red columbines from 2 original plants. I have quite a few flowerbeds, but probably dozens of flowering columbines throughout them. Love this plant to death.

    x mitchelliana, my cross, purp purp x leucophylla F1, Splinter Hill Bog Preserve, Baldwin Co., AL

    flava var. flava, F1, Old Dock, NC

    oreo "Sand Mt. Clone 4" x leucophylla F1, Splinter Hill Bog, AL, my cross

    purp burkii

    purp burkii luteola, one of three clones I have

    second of three clones. I particularly love the 4-pointed cloverleaf shape of this lid.

    This is the rubra "Ancestral Form" from the Fall Line Sandhills. It is an AF form of this taxon from Big Whitewater Creek, Taylor Co., GA.

    'Reptilian Rose' This beast of a plant outgrows any other Sarracenia I have. By far the most monstrously vigorous thing in my collection. Thanks, Phil!

    Crappy backlit shot--will try again with a sunset.

    S. (leuco x oreo) x minor, a SNW plant (Thanks, Paul!)

    minor F1s, Francis Marion National Forest, Berkeley Co., SC, flowering in their 2nd year

    flava var. maxima and var. flava, 3-year-old F1s from Francis Marion National Forest, Berkeley Co., SC

    Red Sumatra x OP seedling

    same batch, another clone; quite a keeper!

    the minor var. minors from Berkeley Co., SC are starting to mature and take on character. Some of the features I'm noticing are strongly veined hoods which approach a deep brown or even red color, heavy fenestrations, and some really wicked red-lipped ones



    note the heavy windowing... will be making some x excellens with this guy and a choice leucophylla

    the windowing stretches quite a good way vertically as well as across the back of the pitchers, too

    flava var. maxima, Berkeley Co., SC, choice seedling that repeatedly makes beautiful, arched hoods. I want this feature in offspring.


    another clone capable of the same arched hoods

    another clone

    Time to share more of my insane love of Sarracenia:

    naturally occurring S. x moorei from Santa Rosa Co., FL (thanks Jay!) Sports a huge reddish-copper lid, and is one of my largest Sarrs.

    'Leah Wilkerson' -- I have finally developed a strategy for reversing and eliminating Sarracenia crown rot. This plant was half-rotten at the beginning of spring, and is now surviving.

    Trying to get some size back on the pitchers. The rhizome was only a few cm long after surgery.

    'Judith Hindle,' 1 year old, directly from the tissue culture lab at ABG


    oreo x flava rugelii

    courtii x minor, a really cute, pinkish plant with great venation and fenestrations. As it grows, I'll think about registering it (open to names!) or possible using it to breed something better. Would really like to get leucophylla in there.


    leucophylla, Baldwin Co., AL

    leucophylla, Sumter Co., GA, not only one of the last two populations for this in my state, but also from a population that is currently down to ~6 individuals

    Very open mouths and lids. I think they're some of the most beautiful of the leucos. My favorite feature is that the red-white mottling carries to the lips, which often doesn't happen to material from other locations. They've got more of a solid red or white thing going on.

    flava rubicorpora, Liberty Co., FL


    emerging 'Adrian Slack' pitcher

    back shot... what a freakin' beautiful plant

    'Hummer's Hammerhead'

    'Dixie Lace'

    think this is 'Bug Scoop'

    purp venosa burkii, Baldwin Co., AL. This was AN EXTRA in my order from a private grower. What huge, ornately veined pitchers this gorgeous BEAST of a plant has!!!

    S. "Barry," a primary hybrid of oreophila "Sand Mt." with a flava atropurpurea. Made by John Brittnacher, and used in the first Sarracenia Osmocote experiments in CPN.

    gorgeous. Not many pitchers, but they're worth the wait.

    alata 'Night' x flava rubricorpora, not quite colored

    D. tracyii, looking an awful lot like something from a Tim Burton movie

    shown in situ in my "sunken pit of doom." As you can see, I use Azolla to cool the pool surface. There are about 5000 tadpoles beneath it too, which I'm conscious of. They've now hatched and every other pitcher has a tiny treefrog sitting atop it in the evening. I love the frogs just as much as the plants!

    Rudbeckia auriculata, down to 2 populations in Georgia. Very threatened.

    flavas (var. maxima and var. flava) from Franis Marion NF, Berkeley Co., SC. There are some spectacular clones from this bunch.

    Red Sumatra x OP

    Red Sumatra x OP, definitely a keeper. Doesn't look like much now, but that shiny red lip is pretty eye-catching and will be useful in the future. I'm thinking perhaps some rubra got in here.

    Same batch, third clone

    another keeper from Red Sumatra x OP. The top of the pitcher and lid turn a chocolate color, like on S. minor. Plus fenestrations, plus great opening color. Can't wait to breed with it.

    oreophila x minor.... love love love!! x harperi is among my favorite crosses, and I had no idea oreo x minor could also yield spectacular stuff!

    purp venosa, Belle Fontaine, Mobile Co., AL

    purp venosa--I'm really attracted to the shape and coloration of this little guy--a Dean Cook plant

    flava var. rugelii, Tattnall Co., GA, a pretty rare location where we also get the southernmost purp venosas

    Nice, Kevin! I need to get into the Sarracenia breeding game.

    S. flava var. ornata "Improved Black Veins." Gorgeous thing! The Bulloch Co. material was extirpated by an apartment complex, and friends of mine rescued as much as they could. Mike Wang's collection is one of a handful of places in the country to still have plants from Statesboro bog.


    I am tentatively calling this plant S. "Vacuum Cleaner." To me it looks like x umlauftiana with heavy veins instead of fenestrations, and to me it's lovely. The cross is by Dean Cook, and it's courtii x alabamensis.

    'Mardi Gras'


    'Dixie Lace'

    'Bug Scoop' I thought it'd be a little more colorful, but hey.


    a giant x excellens bred by Phil Faulisi



    My all-time favorite plant. 'Adrian Slack'

    The colors are just friggin' surreal

    From breeding with it, it appears 'AS' has a gene to color the bottom lid surface red, similar to alata var. rubrioperculata. Suspicious! The top surface is left to be variably colored, veined or fenestrated.

    Frog in the bog. I think Upland Chorus, but'll need some help from the audience. Any frog folks out there wanna ID him?


    Late season flavas, seed-grown from permitted collections from Francis Marion NF, SC

    Fall pitchers starting on leucos from a permitted collection from Splinter Hill Bog


    They're already full of moths. Completely.

    S. alabamensis

    psittacina, from a permitted collection from Abita Springs Flatwoods Preserve, St. Tammany Parish, LA

    S. flava var. atropurpurea. Lid's almost black, but doesn't photograph that way.


    purp purp

    psitt from FL, can't remember where, either Liberty or Okaloosa Co

    'Carolina Yellow Jacket,' love it or hate it, is the fastest growing thing I have in my collection

    purp venosa, collected by ABG near Belle Fontaine, Mobile Co., AL

    venosa from Dean Cook

    purp burkii luteola, from ABG, who has maintained the original plants discovered by Bob Hanrahan. The 3 I have are descendents.

    S. rubra "Ancestral Form." SG from a population on a friend's private property, Big Whitewater Creek, Taylor Co., GA. There was apparently a small population of S. oreophila that occurred nearby in Taylor Co., so rubra and oreophila were co-occurring here. When it eventually gets a formal description, this taxon will probably be named for the discoverer of S. oreophila, Dr. Neisler. He discovered oreophila in the population at Taylor Co. (which is long since extirpated). I think the ancestral rubra is beautiful. It's got a distinctive silvery white blush to the outer surface of the tubes.

    Baldwin Co. leucos from Mike Wang

    Half the nursery..... I already have my endangered plant permit and I'm hoping to apply for my nursery license sometime in the coming year. Too many plants!!!
