    Yellow Sarracenias

    In the past, I've seen sarracenias infused with yellow as one can see in my yellow Wriggleyana but yesterday at the BACPS meet, I found a sarracenia that was mostly yellow. I purchased it and I'm hoping that this is not some kind of environmentally-induced coloration. I sure hope that this thing is stable.

    My wriggleyana:



    And here's my new acquisition:

    Looking good. There's an impressive yellow flava about called "Goldie"

    Your wrigleyana doesn't look like any hybrid I've seen of that cross though. Looks more like psittacina x alata or rubra to me.

    It's not a pure flava, though it has rugelli in it. The cross is (rubra x oreo) x flava rugelli.

    It's not doodlebug, but I find it hard to believe it's a wrigleyana. I have an un-labelled hybrid from a certain vendor in the pacific NW that looks very close to that one. I've always wondered what it was. I've kind of been referring to it as flava x psitt, but I'm thinking it's probably alabamensis x psittacina, as the flowers are pure red and alabamensis can also have a nice golden color to it. I don't have a pic of it, but I do have an open-pollinated seedling in its 2nd year from it. I'm assuming it was self-pollinated because it looks so much like the mom, except the hoods are more open:
