    I'm sure it's a S.flava. I didn't see any adult S.rubra plants at the site. With the color of the plant and how much it looked like a S.rubra, I just wanted to ask you guys and make sure.

    I lean towards S. flava. Possible variation atropurpurea. I am raising S. rubra ssp. rubra seedlings right now, and they maintain thier green coloration and veining. The hood of the seedlings is longer as well. Though hard to tell now, by mid spring to late summer next year, you should know for sure. My S. rubra seedlings are Brunswick County, North Carolina plants from Shallote. Possibly the red coloration might be due to time of year of the photo. Just when was this photo taken? S. flava var. atropurpurea are supposed to have been extirpated fron North Carolina, but as far as I am concerned, if seed fell anywhere they existed, they may yet still exist in the habitat. Good luck, Ozzy. Keep me informed as to what you come up with.

    I've grown many different Sarracenia from seed to maturity, species and hybrids in various conditions and locations across the USA. It doesn't look like any S. rubra I've ever grown, seedling or mature plant. It looks like a young S. flava.

    Well, Sir Oz, I have to concur with Joseph. I am sure it is S. flava. Which variation is yet to be determined.

    Unfortunatly the may not be around much longer, as ozzy has stated elsewhere the site is being developed
    that makes no logic

    I talked to the land owner today and the plants will be saved either on or off the property. I am meeting with him tomorrow.
