    Here's probably my most impressive discovery I've made so far, a yellow flowered clone of S. leucophylla in NW FL! These plants were not anthocyanin free, the just had yellow flower's. Other yellow flowered clones have been discovered in AL, but these are to my knowledge the first to be discovered in FL*(see note). This site is slowly being crowded out and is often visited by 4 wheelers and pot growers, and it didn't help when the bottom half of the bog was destroyed to make a retention pond. I have repeatedly attempted to contact the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see about preserving these plants and maybe even site but still haven't got a answer. This site is right in the middle of a large city, and right next to a huge food center, so it just shows how many new things are still out there to be found.

    *(Note: After talking with Jim Burkhalter, the curator of the herbarium of the University of West Florida, whom I am a good friend with, he showed me a herbarium specimen of a mutant S. leucophylla flower that was yellow and had 6 petals, however, this was in the 1980's when he first collected it, and the site is believed to be gone now, so I can't confirm whether this plant was antho free or yellow flowered like the ones you are about to see)

    These pics arn't the best quality, but there all I have right now, sorry!

    Well, here's the pics!:

    Close up, note the small amounts of red on the top


    Here's a pic showing the normal red flowered form, and the yellow flowered clone


    There were actually several plants here, around 7-10


    Finally a plant that I believe to be a intermediate form between the yellow flowered form and the typical red flowered form, probably from the two plants crossing:

    Fascinating! It would be a wonderful thing to get the locality into cultivation, even better to preserve the site, that is unique. And the possible intermediate is a beautiful color too, kind of surprising it's not a recessive trait.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Panhandle is the place to be for Sarracenia in FL

    Sorry, typo on Sarracenia, thanks Joseph!

    Here's some more shots from the same bog as the yellow flowered S. leucophylla




    These pics are from just a few day's ago, surprisingly there were still quite a few late season pitchers left










    Some Drosera capillaris growing underwater, this species can be quite hardy:


    You thought I was joking about the weed growers, plants are already gone but they left the pots, these are only two:
