    Hello

    I saw this sarracenia at the Meadowview event and thought it was very interesting. Anybody know what this is?

    It has a very tall thin tube that flares to a wide, sloping mouth with a brilliant magenta lip. The lid stands straight up, is very flat with just a litte bit of ruffling to the edge.

    I would assume its a hybrid...anyone know parentage or anything about this plant?



    Thanks!

    I think we should call it S. x "Cabaret" (however you spell it...I mean the big musical stage production. Man I hates being a bad speller) because it is so showy, and is wearing lipstick.

    I think pondboy may be right that it has some leuco...I think there is purp in there too, because of the ruffled, upright lid. However, you'd think that a purp hybrid would be tubbier and more prone. I guess you never know what traits will get exibitted.

    Yeah, I was thinking some leuco and maybe purp also but that lid is SO flat and so upright. There is just a hint of ruffling around the edges. That tube is very narrow and the mouth slopes down quite a bit soooo...I dunno. It was quite the eye-catcher though...so different from most of the others. Might have to check into acquiring that.

    I like those names y'all suggested...lol...Holy Moley and Cabaret (spelled correctly Schloaty&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img].

    I have written to Phil Sheridan to ask what it is but might take a while to get a reply.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    Maybe it's a Leuco/Catesbaei cross. It would explain the upright hood and the purp influence.

    As far as Naming: S. x "Flaming Lips" or S. x "Rolling Stones"

    Why not just Sarracenia 'Mick Jagger' or 'Hot Lips.' 'Gator Mouth' works too. I have one I call 'Pink Eye.' I wish i could get *%$#@! Easy Designer to work and I would post it.
