    Parents of S. 'June Bug'

    I finally have a sarracenia flowering that wasn't purchased that way and it happens to be the S June Bug that I got last year.

    This got me to wondering...what the heck is in this plant? I wouldn't think that I'd have much trouble finding out online, but for some reason never found the answer.

    Can someone clue me in?

    Thanks

    It's one of the trademarked "Little Bugs" series of hybrids/cultivars from the North Carolina Botanical Garden/University of North Carolina - Charlotte.

    The series includes:
    Doodlebug
    Junebug
    Ladybug
    Lovebug
    Redbug

    other hybrids/cultivars from them are
    Dixie Lace
    Mardi Gras
    Ladies in Waiting
    Flies Demise
    Ritchie Bell

    Redbug is patented, the other "bugs" have patents pending. It should be propgated vegetatively or by Tissue Culture (under license) only. The "parentage" may be described in the patent application or contact Larry Mellichamp at the UNCC.

    NAN, what do you mean "vegetatively"? Just curious.
    All fear violence, all are afraid of death.
    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.

    Is that by way of division only?

    Speaking of Sarr hybrids;

    Anyone know who did the 'Scarlet Belle' hybrid?

    I find it rather fetching.
