    My money is on S. alata. Let's see what Alexis, Pyro or Phil have to say.

    There is not enough flare in the pitcher and the column is too broad and too short to be S. oreophila.

    Well...my first guess is that it is not a primary hybrid of flava x alata. Although seedlings will show much variation this particular cross will usually send up rather tall and slender pitchers, so we can rule that out. It does seem to have a fair amount of oreophila in it though..as well as alata based on the hood development. I would say it COULD be (flava x alata) x oreophila or (flava x oreophila) x alata... or a combination thereof. What I don't see is any rubra influence. If there is any rubra in the lineage then it has been line bred out some time ago. I would need to see some really well developed flowers first and maybe some late season pitchers.

    It also helps to see a fully mature, multiple growth plant that is several years old which has been left undisturbed. Sarr hybrids can change dramatically from new divisions to well aged specimens.

    I talked it over with Pyro and our agreement is that it is most likely what is sold as rubra "canebreak sweet pitcher". looking back through my plant purchases there are only two candidates, it and and a plant from a group of flavas I bought from a different Oregon based web nursery. it isn't flava, so it ends up having to be the other.

    If you are clever and figure out who I bought it from and check out the pictures it points to that plant.

    Looks like it has alata in it. Maybe flava x alata.
