    A few Sarr pics





    This Sarr purpurea would be huge if it had a huge pot. I've split this plant last year. It has the 6" pot full again already.



    Top view with a quarter.

    That last purp has some great color. Does it have a special name description? Is it a cultivar?

    Very beautiful! Is that Dana's Delight or Judith Hindle? This time of year seems to be especially favourable for them.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Alexis,
    The second one down is S. Dana's Delight.

    mannyherrera,
    I picked that one up form Rob Sacilotto when I visited his place last year. He was crossing the reddest S. purps he could find to come up with the color of the plant. He calls it Sarracenia purpurea - Black/Red


    This is what he emailed me when I asked him about the plant after purchasing it from him.

    "The black-red purps. are really not properly either subspecies, although most of them are closer to ssp. purpurea because of the longer flower stalk. However, they have been extensively bred and mixed between the two subspecies and selected for color. Dark ssp. venosa and dark ssp. purpurea were crossed, selfed and evaluated. I'd just call 'em purpurea and leave it at that. At some point, I'm planning on registering the plant with a better description and explanation of their heritage."

    Thanks Elgecko. I think I have that plant. At least, it looks like it. It was given to me as S.purp venosa 'Dark Red Pitchers'. But it looks like it has purp purp in it.

    Doesn't any S.purp get that deep purple color if given enough light?

    My three S.purps are all that dark color under my grow lights.

    No.

    These 2 S. purp grow outside beside each other and you can tell a big difference between the 2 plants. There is also a green form that has no red at all.
