    Could anyone help with these Sarracenia hybrids?

    I know that Sarracenia hybrids are among the most difficult to identify due to the possibility of nearly all members of the genus crossing with one another, but could anyone help me to try and identify my two hybrids? Both hybrids are frost tolerant and grow well in full sun.

    Hybrid #1:
    This seems like a hybrid with some S. leucophylla in it but I have no idea what other species might be involved. It grows pitchers up to 40cm high, which turn red in the sun. The lid is curly and the pitchers have a more blotchy appearance towards the top. The flower has red petals and grows on a long stalk. I only have some pictures of an older and smaller pitcher but the characteristics are present anyway (albeit in a smaller/less pronounced way)

    Hybrid #2
    It seems like there is some influence of S. purpurea in this hybrid. The pitchers are between 10 and 30cm long spread out from the center but go upwards towards their top. They express a very pronounced red coloration when put in sunny conditions (I have 2 plants now which have become a dark bloody red color all over). I have not yet seen a flower but one is developping now so I'll know the color of this in a few weeks.

    edit: the flower color is also red

    One of the plants which has been grown in lower light conditions:

    Many thanks to the person that can identify these for me.

    Hard to tell on the 1st pic. Either a leucophylla or leucophylla hybrid. 2nd pic looks like x mitchelliana.

    Did you mean the first and second hybrid? because the first and second photographs are the same pitcher viewed from different angles.

    Yes, I meant plant, not pic. The 1st one looks like an old pitcher fom last year but given all the pink, it could possibly be x' Dana's Delight'.

    The second one is definitely a purp hybrid, but I would doubt mitchelliana, as there don't seem to be any areoles noticeable, like there would be in such a cross. Possibly a backcross with a species like rubra, so maybe x chelsonii x purpurea.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
