    S. psittacina hybrid?

    I purchased the following plant a few weeks ago. The nursery gets it's plants from a local grower, but they do the labels themselves. They sell all Sarracenia as "Sarracenia Sp." so it's tough sometimes to know the exact species you're getting.

    Clearly it's a psittacina hybrid, at least that's what it looks like.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what it may be a cross of?

    Most likely S. Doodlebug. If not that, maybe flava x psittacina?

    It could be one of the "bug series":

    Doodlebug

    Red Bug

    Love Bug

    Lady Bug

    I heard back from the grower. He said it's a cross between S. psittacina and S. rubra ssp. Alabamensis. Is there a name for that?

    I found a site that said Doodlebug is S. psittacina X S. alabamensis. If that's true than this is in fact what I have.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Yes, I met Larry Mellichamp (The hybridiser) in person, and he says that is correct.
