    you know, the more I look at it, I think it definitely could be. my first impression was definitely no, because it really didn't resemble mine, other than shape. but i guess not everyone grows their stuff the same and all that, and browsing other pics of it,..yeah definitely could be d-bug.

    interesting that that is a division from the same plant, it doesn't show the yellow I see in the first pic. although the lighting is different. i still don't think it's a wrig because of that yellow. that just screams alabamensis or flava to me, and it's not a color that I would think would be inherited from leuco or psitt. also, the lack of white spotting on the lid - with leuco and psitt as the parents, you would expect the lid to be fully spotted (think: scarlett belle). the lids on this plant are sparsely spotted, if at all, which makes me think one of the parents is a non-spotted variety. i know genetics can work in myserious ways sometimes, so I wouldn't rule it out as being a wrigleyana, but because of that yellow, I just can't see it being a pure wrigleyana.

    I suppose it could be doodlebug. It may have been mislabeled where I purchased it. What's in the make-up of Doodlebug?

    "Doodle bug" S. rubra ssp alabamensis x psittacina. Looks like 'Dixie Lace' too [(leucophylla x rubra wherryi) x (psittacina x purpurea)]. "Doodle bug" tends to be more decumbant than 'Dixie Lace'.

    I thought Dixie Lace was a simple Wriggleyana. Is that not the case?

    Sarracenia 'Dixie Lace'

    This specific clone was selected in 1993. It resulted from a 1988 pollination at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (hereafter UNCC) that germinated in 1989 (seed lot 88-14). The female parent was a natural hybrid between Sarracenia leucophylla and S. alabamensis subsp. wherryi (given the unregistered horticultural name "Cotton Patch") collected in Perdido, Alabama in 1985 and grown at the McMillan Greenhouse at UNCC. The pitchers resemble S. leucophylla, although only up to 30 cm (12 inches) tall, and are distinctly pubescent. The male parent was an artificial hybrid of Sarracenia psittacina and an unknown partner, probably S. purpurea, made by Dr. Warren Stoutamire, and given to the North Carolina Botanical Garden (hereafter NCBG) prior to 1985. That hybrid was unofficially called "Snorkle" and continues to be grown in the collections of both institutions.

    This is a side-by-side comparison of the two so-called 'wriggleyanas' that according to NAN are not at all Wriggleyanas. Either way, nice plants.
