    Some Sarracenia ID please

    I have several that I need IDs on if possible. I lost the tags and now that they are sending up some pitchers, it would be useful to get a new tag on them. These are form my personal collection and I have had them for years, and you would think I could ID them positively myself, but I want to be sure. I have ideas, but I certainly don't want to mislabel them, so I appreciate any help. They aren't going to be anything rare or expensive, because back then when I was collecting these I was buying cheap ones, not rare ones. Thanks!

    This is what they look like to me; the pitchers are just underdeveloped enough that it's hard to be 100%:

    Are any of them hybrids?

    1. S. minor
    2. S. leucophyla (if the flowers look like this, though, it's a S. leucophylla 'Tarnok')
    3. S. flava
    4. S. leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek'

    Veronis, there is no way #4 is a hurricane creek white
    #2 also no way for it to be a rubra, the lid and mouth is all wrong and perfectly or near perfectly fits flava or a hybrid with flava dominance.

    #3 was a mistake - I meant flava but I was looking at rubra pictures in another tab. I edited it before your reply.

    Regarding #4, you may be right but why couldn't it be Hurricane Creek?

    Not nearly enough white for HCW. It's a leuco hybrid, maybe Judith Hindle, or a similar cross.

    most likely a judith hindle then. These are plants that I've had forever and never really paid attention to. I would have bought the cheapest most common ones, and judith hindle fits that description. I have all of those mentioned above as well, but they are small and just waking up from dormancy, and honestly, so many sarracenia look so much alike that it is hard to tell. But this helps, thanks guys!
