    No way Jose! S. x moorei is the best simple cross!

    There should be a complex cross that covers every species. It would be kind of ugly but it would be neat for novelty's sake.

    Flava var. rugelli is probably my absolutely most favorite Sarracenia.

    I have a special fondness for 'Leah Wilkerson.' "Wilkerson's Red" makes my heart sing as do most any red Sarracenia. Straight species, it would have to be flava rubricorpora with a yellow lid, like the acres of them in the Apalachicola National Forest. Natural crosses, it would have to be mooreis hands down of which 'Leah' and 'AS' fall into. I recieved an 'AS' last year. It pouted all summer and did very little. At present, it is putting up several strong pitchers, no flower and, no divisions. What makes 'Leah' special is the fact that it could be TCed. Flavas are notorious for not having clean cultures so any cross with flavas proves to be very difficult to TC (ie 'AS' or any moorei for that fact) I understand that 'AS' (is a naturally occuring moorei) has been tried but has been unsuccessful. 'Leah' was TCed and is in process now. Besides, 'Leah' is a strong grower and rapid multiplier. many people have 'Leah' all over the world so it show be a short time before it is easily available. As far as named cultivars go 'Juduthip Soper' is nice, 'Cobra nest' (there we go again with those red ones!) 'Bug Bat' and 'Frog Man."

    I think that it is entirely too hard to narrow it down to one Sarracenia, for me anyway! Mooreis are great and I too have a fondness for 'Leah Wilkerson' but one that hasn't been mentioned yet that is one of my favorites is 'Bud Wilkerson' and that may be because there aren't many pics of it out there. I will be sure to post one later when mine opens. Kimber Red Ruffles is another that is on my favorites list. Moorei Big Red is another great Moorei, tall and red too Brooks! Cleopatra's Demise, The Brute, and Readii Alabama Red from Sunbelle are others that I love! Too many for me to list but that is a few at the top for me!

    I also think a beautiful species or actually, variety of a species is S. leucophylla 'hot pink'

    Oh my God!

    This is absolutely beautiful!

    Beautiful Sarracenia! I believe it is S. moorei x leucophylla?

    Turns out its for sale on Cooks Carnivorous Plants, but their plant looks far different! Oh well.

    I got your PM Necifix

    That moorei x leucophylla was one of my first plants grown from seed, so thanks for the comment. That particular plant isn't at ******, but he probably has the same cross for sale.
