    It appears to be a cross between purpurea and leucyphylla or rosea and leucyphylla.

    I'm not sure where you guys are seeing leucophylla - I don't see any white spots at all. My best guess is S. purpurea x rubra (also known as S. x chelsonii) or perhaps S. purpurea x alata (also known as S. x exornata) though it could very well be a complex hybrid.

    I see what you mean. It could have rubra in it. It was the heavy veining that made me think of leucyphylla.

    Nice looking sarracenia!

    There is no way to tell for sure what the cross is but it is definitely a hybrid so cannot be labeled as anything but "Sarracenia hybrid" if no label came with the plant. As nimbulan said, it could be a complex hybrid with purpurea in the mix. I have a similar looking one that is S. purpurea x Judith Hindle, but like I said you can only label it "hybrid" without knowing the parentage.

    Agreed, don't label it anything other than "mixed hybrid" or similar; the veining could come from rubra, alata, or complex parentage with other species, and some of the shape may be from minor but not definite on that.
    Also, to another comment: x exornata is rosea x alata, not purpurea; purp and alata don't meet in nature.
    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.
