    Question S. rubra ssp. gulfensis "Gaint"

    i have been off the forums for a long time, i know i have a LOT of back reading and general catch up to do.
    i couldn't help myself, and picked up another plant from a local nursery. the tag reads (printed) " Sarracenia hybrid" and in pencil "gulf. GIANT x "couurtii" ".

    i would assume S. rubra ssp. gulfensis "Giant" x (psittacina x purpurea venosa)

    i don't remember hearing about an S. rubra ssp. gulfensis "Giant" being produced, which is why i'm asking.

    now to the back reading...

    I know Lees Botanical Gardens carries the giant form of S. rubra ssp. gulfensis. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if your hybrid originated with them. I'd love to see pics if you have any..

    well, something like that. i ment yearly as in "this years photos" take photos more or less at random. whatever i think looks neat at the moment. i make up a background changer out of them for the long winter haul of no plants. this winter is taking forever...

    Yes...there is a larger form of rubra gulfensis that grows alongside regular rubra gulfensis. Some speculate as to the origin. It is said that it could have leucophylla in it's background. It's identical in color and in flower to rubra gulfensis. The lid, however, is a little wavier.
