    what is the whitest Sarr?

    Does anyone grow the S. x 'Hurricane Creek White' hybrid?

    Iím looking to grow the whitest S. leucophylla I can find. Hopefully this spring & summerÖ

    Iíve read that 'Hurricane Creek White' is the one of the whitest Sarrs around and that itís fairly hardy too.

    So, how white is white?

    I didn't know it was a hybrid, I thought that was location data.

    Yes, I grow it. It's stunningly large compared to other leucos. It's extinct in the wild.

    It's a cultivar collected from the wild. The original site has been destroyed.:

    HCW is a pure leuco not a hybrid and the site was not actually destroyed as was reported.

    THe plant I have labeled as HCW has a fair amount of red to it still. The antho free leuco is definitely more shock white (all other leucos have a faint pink tinge to them if you compare to the antho free form) but the aereolata are not as large/prominent on it

    It's not a hybrid, the original plant was a wild-collected cultivar.

    A friend of mine gave me a division of a plant that he got directly from John Hummer.

    The plant produced one of the whitest pitchers I've ever seen. One of my favorite plants in my collection!

    Haven't seen one "whiter" than this one...

    How about alba...
    Hmmm.... it's pretty close. But I have to admit, that particular alba is whiter than my Hurricane Creek White.
