    Most of the pics are from central Alabama. We saw some AMAZING stands and some very rare plants. Was a great trip.

    Good going, Casper! Now, hook up with Brooks, and get an education on the Florida Panhandle bogs. You may just meet Jim Miller too, an old time bogger who can tell you a hybrids parentage almost at a glance. Very knowledgable man. You should be prepared to learn a ton of good stuff.

    Ok ... checking in (late ... darn work).

    Casper's correct ... the first photo (with spider) is a pink-flowered form of S. rubra wherryi, a fairly rare flower color form. Now ... I believe that these floral variants are actually introgressant hybrids (which would make it S. rubra wherryi x S. alata (or vice versa) at least at some point back in its parentage. The scapes on these lighter color variants also tend to be a bit taller, on average, than their typical red counterparts (which lends more weight to my slapdash hypothesis). The pitchers, however, look indistinguishable (at least to my amateur eye) from standard S. rubra wherryi.

    Casper's other photos (I believe) are a mix of two sites. The first (Citronelle) is principally composed of S. leucophylla and S. alata hybrids. (S. psittacina also inhabits the area, and at least one S. purpurea x S. alata hybrid has been found).

    The second (Tibbee), is S. leucophylla, S. alata and S. rubra wherryi, with an astounding mix of hybrids between all three.
    Growing CP since 1975. Succeeding (more or less) since 1990.
