    Unhappy

    Got this Sar. from safeway last year, they labeled it cobra lily but clearly it's not. Now that it's going to flower I'd like to know what it is. Any ideas?



    Thanks, Chris

    It's a hybrid with purpurea in it. I wonder what color the flowers will be?
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    It definitely has S. purpurea in it. Maybe some rubra? Or possible flava.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    that company generally distributes two hyrbids as "cobra lily": wrigleyana, and some kind of purp x flava or rubra, I think you have the second onw

    Bugweed are you sure? Obviously you are probibly right but I would go more with the S. purp x. rubra. Just based on the fact that 1) it looks like mine and 2) the typical curve on the edge of the lid to the pitcher i of flava hybrids is not present. Although S. purp. burkii willalso have th esame effect.

    I am as sure as I can be. Doesn't mean I am right, but the plant does look s. purp X s. flava to me. Don't see enough s. purp X s. rubra to be positive. Close as I can get.
