    Sarr ID

    Well, I thought this was just a straight up flava, but this much larger pitcher just popped up, now I'm wondering. I'll open the gates to opinions. Thanks!

    There's clearly flava in this but I want to say I see a hint of rubra in it to. What ssp though I couldnt tell you!
    Whatever you've got it's a nice looking Sarr!

    I hadn't been thinking about rubra... last year i bought a "canebreak sweet pitcher" from a vendor in Oregon. I thought that plant rotted as it just fell away to nothing mid season. Well I moved over the winter and pulled everything up out of the old barrels and put all the good rhizomes in this bog. looking at those pictures vs what is on Bob Z's site it looks a lot like alabamensis... makes me wonder.

    I think it looks like s. oreophila.

    Maybe from the veination, but I'd think oreophila would lend a more curled neck and a wider mouth. I'd say S. rubra ssp. alabamensis fits the bill pretty closely.

    I was thinking that too, but I never have owned one. the big one poking its head into the shot in the first pic is one of my two oreo hybrids. other is oreo x leuco. It is obviously not one of those.

    It could also be alata or alata x flava or one of those with rubra. Might never be able to tell for sure. Hopefully it'll flower for you next year.
