    Sarracenia Hybrids - but which ones?

    I have two unknown Sarracenia Hybrids to identify:

    Hybrid No. 1










    And...




    Hybrid No.2




    Can anyone help identify?

    The first one (COULD BE) a S. x Mitchelliana (Purpurea x Leucophylla) , if it is though it looks like it needs more sun. Mine turn a deep purple, but yours could be different. It would be easier to identify next year when they flower. The second one looks like it (COULD BE) a S. x Readii ( Leucophylla x Rubra ) again, take a pic when they flower, the color/size of the flower helps to identify...

    The problem with hybrids, is that if you dont already know what they are, its virtually impossible to figure it out with any certainty..yes, you can have some pretty good guesses, and one of those guesses might even be right..but you will never know for sure.

    So its generally a good practice to not give them any real "official" name..because you could be wrong...and you wouldnt want to later give a plant away, forgetting that the label you gave it was simply "an educauted guess" and have someone think the plant is something it actually isnt.

    its fine to try to guess at the parentage, but dont officially label them with a name..
    you should officially call them simply "hybrids of unknown parentage"

    I'm not planning to trade them, but after looking at the original sources list of all cultivated plants they sell, and asking for photos of the plants that could be it, I've found out the top one is Sarracenia Mitchelliana x Leucophylla.

    I contacted the person the other hybrid came from, and it is indeed a Readii.

    Thanks for all the help though.
