    Mine is leucophylla but I am having no luck overwintering them here in Iowa. I will give them a try one more year.

    I like anything with a leuco or minor in it. Here's a recently acquired plant:

    Ive seen a couple really stunning oreophila x leucophylla, and reverses of it that absolutely make me go nuts....
    but as far as species go, im gonna have to say flava var. atropurpurea all the way

    It's all about the flava var rubricorpora red tube forms. Those things make other sarracenia look like turf grass

    I have to agree: There's nothing quite as spectacular as a well-grown rubicorpora.
    I might be inclined to say "Adrian Slack" if mine were putting up pitchers yet.

    Mine would be Sarracenia oreophila.

    It's tough, pretty, and vigorous.

    Whichever plants are looking good, just out of dormancy, I guess. My Sarracenia flava rubricorpora are coloring up nicely and the S. leucophylla "Titan" and S. minor var. okeefenokeensis are living up to their large reputations . . .
