    More Reds

    As a follow-on to the Travis thread (as well as Bucky & Joel), here are a few more Sarrs w/ some nice red coloration (they keep prying me away from my work)

    Two S. flava var rubricorpora plants from the Appalachicola, FL area. Clone 2 is on the left w/ lots of red and clone 1 is on the right w/ significantly less red. Both were from the same batch of seed.


    S. flava var atropurpurea from Bay County, FL


    S. rosea from Bay County, FL. It usually gets darker red later in the season - but it's one of my favorites due to the pitcher & hood shape. Often the 2 sides of the hood almost close over the pitcher mouth. This plant was grown from seed many years ago. Interestingly - it spent 2-3 years as a ~3" diameter miniature plant. All the pitchers were shaped as an adult - just very small. Then one year, it just decided to grow up....


    S. purpurea ssp venosa var montana from Henderson County, NC. The pitcher on the right just opened in the last day or so before the pic.


    S. purpurea ssp venosa 'Brunswick Beauty' from a few weeks ago.


    Tops of a S. flava var cuprea. I've grown this clone for years & given away many. Dean Cook coined it 'Kimber Red Ruffles' (or something similar). It has an amazingly dark & huge lid...


    Young S. flava var atropurpurea from Liberty County, FL. Received this in a trade over the winter. For a young & newly transplanted plant - it's showing a lot of promise ...


    Some lids from S. flava ‘Bronze’


    I just spent the last hour updating my growlist & uploading add'l pics over there - so this'll do for now ....
    All the best,
    Ron

    Ron,
    great looking plants.
    I like the S. flava ‘Bronze’ the best.
    Can you get a shot of the side of the plant? I'm curious if the rest of the tubes are green or do they also have a red shading to them?
    If they are green, wow, what a contrast that plant must be.

    Steve,
    See if the add'l pics on my growlist show you what you're looking for - the one labeled 'Clump' shows the side view & the 1st 'Pic' shows a side view from last year. For super dark red, I prefer the atro (code 43). In the mid-day sun, it almost looks black. The Horry County cuprea (46B) has a red lid & a contrasting green body (I believe).
    All the best,
    Ron
