    Thanks everyone.
    The Franklin County (FL) giant S. leucophylla do not grow with any other species of Sarracenia. These are also called Tate's Hell Giant leucos, and may be very close to the southeastern extreme of S. leucophylla range. They're just beautiful.

    *major drool*. How in the world do you guys differentiate between a "red S. leucophylla" and something like S. "Dana's Delight" and a S. 'Judith Hindle' and a....?

    The size alone of the Tate's Hell S. leucophylla would put Dana's Delight and Judith hindle to shame.

    Yep. What Bugweed said.
    After a while you can easily tell a hybrid (like Dana's Delight) from a pure leuco, and once you become a codger like me and have seen a zillion of 'em, you can even tell what region a leuco came from, give or take. There are a number of isolated stands of leuco scattered thinly east of Rt. 65 no more than a few miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. Have yet to see any other species growing with them, not even S. psittacina.

    This is S. "Diamond Head" (soon to be registered officially as a cultivar, it's the results of our own breeding)
    the parentage is: S. gilpinii x rubra?- Yellow River Nat Hybrid x S. minor "Okee"
