    Unhappy

    Is there any purpurea hybrids that look very similar to the species itself? This plant was labelled as a hybrid but I thought it looked really like purpurea. One cute thing though, most of the hoods are always overlapping...

    Looks like a pure purp to me, probably S. purpurea spp. venosa var. burkii going by the hoods.

    Hi Cindy -

    Although I would not consider myself an expert by any means, the hoods are not quite as fluted as the venosa burkei that I have, and look as if they have some northern purp genetics in them. Perhaps this was labeled a hybrid because it is a cross between a S. purpurea ssp. purpurea and a S. purpurea ssp. venosa (or burkei)?

    Hope this helps.

    I should have clarified that. Only some forms of Montana have a tightly rolled lid--Carolina form? There was a discussion of this here:

    Anyway, I guess other S. purpurea could have a hood like that. I wish Bugweed would weigh in on this.

    Hey Joe, Cindy et al -

    I talked with BW a couple of nights ago and told him we cold use his input on this thread. I guess he must be busy...

    The main reason I thought a Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purp. x venosa hybrid was because of the labeling of Cindy's plant. This does also resemble montana, but the higher likelihood to me seemed to be a hybrid...

    Where's that Bugweed when you need him...
