    S. flava variety

    This came from a nursery in Brunswick county NC labeled as "S. flava". As it emerges in the spring it is hunter green with rust-colored top. The S. flava var. maxima from the same nursery is yellow-green with no rust-colored top as it emerges. Is this just an unusual maxima x cuprea cross?

    It could be a Coppertop, or is that the same as cuprea?

    I was thinking along the same lines as Capensis, maybe a coppertop? The color will diminish over time. Nice plant none the less!

    The common name for Sarracenia flava is Yellow Pitcher Plant. The yellow-green color is typical.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Edit: Ok, I see it now. Hmm, I'm not sure what the above is, then. Good luck.

    Yep, its var. Cuprea beautiful plant

    Edit: the color might not be as pronounced because its the beginning of the growing season, dont expect all plants to show that amazing color yet.
