    Very good. I actually altered it a few weeks ago. Flava var. maxima was described as having a lot of color for some reason.

    Yeah, I'm not sure who wrote that. Thanks for fixing it (and the S. purpurea article too!). The species pages all need fixing up... I think only 3 are even existent right now.

    Unless it's transparent, everything has color!

    Hi, I have a question regarding S. Rosea. The wikipedia article says it's been widely disclaimed, but recently I've still seen it being used around.

    Hope I didn't start a taboo taxonomic topic. Thanks.

    SpyC, No worms here! We all know what is being talked about when rosea is mentioned, so use it if you like it. Means little in the overall scheme of things. Varietal names are fairly useless, and really put the plants in a box where a red tube, green lid is concerned. S. flava var. rubricorpora's color goes WAY beyond Schnell's attempt at sorting out the whole thing, but some things were not taken into consideration, so it makes no difference! You get stuck with what you get stuck with. No one wants to raise the issue of rubricorpora has variations within the Variety. But since that could become too involved, just call'em ornata, or even atropurpurea, as some rubricorpora do color up red completely. So if they were red tube, green lid going in, and the tube darkens with age, and the red spreads everywhere over the plant, then the plant is perpetrating FRAUD!!!!! An identity change!!!! Fie and Away!!!! Methinks much is afoot!!! If it is easier to call a plant by another name just to be different, or try to sort out the mess, well, take your pick. I would rather go to work on the genetic variation within the variety. An incredible Brain Tease for me!!! As far as names, whether varietal names, or good ole names from before the changes, do what you want. Most of the older growers will know what you are talking about when no one else will. No matter which name you use.

    Hi SpyCspider,

    Thanks for asking! I think that the name S. rosea is used mainly because it is shorter and easier to write than Sarracenia purpurea subsp. venosa var. burkii, not because people accept its status as a separate species. Your thoughts?
