    Here's a bunch of Sarracenia rosea/purpurea sbsp. venosa var. burkii from Tarkiln Bayou State Park, I had to hike a lot to find this population but it was worth it!

































    This was the biggest pitcher I saw the whole time, it was huge!


    Here's a shot of the whole plant






















    Some D. capillaris here too


    A funky hybrid, I believe to be S. rosea x leucophylla






















    This has to be my all-time favorite Sarracenia hybrid, I believe to be S. rosea x leucophylla












    Some D. tracyi


    and D. capillaris


    More D. tracyi, probably one of my all time favorite dews




    D. tracyi field






    Some D. intermedia that were growing next to a stream that ran down the middle of the trail


    U. cornuta, I think, though there's a chance it could be juncea

    Very nice. Great to see the natural hybrids and all the D. filiformis var. tracyi. Odd that the first hybrid doesn't seem to open it's pitchers fully.

    Fantastic find! Did you find any larger, more mature clumps of S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii? All those look fairly small/juvenile.

    I'm really excited to see hybrids with S. leucophylla. Those are, hands down, my favorite Sarracenia hybrids. Usually, I see them with fairly heavy red coloration and few windows, most being apparent on the pitcher body. It's really interesting to see one with more intermediate coloration. Then again, I think the crosses I've seen have all had a strongly colored burkii parent. It seems that you've been finding some with less red coloration.

    That was another interesting thing about this particular site, it had almost no mature clumps, which was why Jim Burkhalter found it interesting in the first place and showed it to me. I have two explanations for this:
    1. Most of the plants recently grew from seeds
    2. These plants were located in a fire break, I believe the equipment they used to clear it chopped up the soil and all the plants in it, there by shredding the Sarracenia rhizomes and causing them to be spread out and recently sprouted from the rhizome bits

    When I go back this spring I will take some pictures of the many more mature clumps that are found elsewhere

    Huh, well, they do all appear almost the same age. It'll be interesting to see what you find when you revisit.

    Here's a few more random pics:

    What may or may not be the only pitcher any of the yellow flowered S. leucophylla's produced last year, hoping for more this year


    Some more S. leucophylla from the same bog




    This has to be the most beautiful sarr flower I have ever seen, It is a hybrid flower from one of only two S. flava sites in Escambia county, FL. I believe this particular hybrid is a S. flava x leucophylla, but I'm not positive, either way, it's very pretty
