    Deroose doesn't do Sarracenia... They don't do pot stakes either.

I understand that there are some generic rubra hybrids circulating, as well - it could be that your plant isn't specific to one of the named subspecies.

    If they buy them from AG3 they come with the stakes/tags.

    I'm at work right now, so I can't check. But the pitchers are ~9" tall and that one tag in the foreground looks the like the one I have.

    I'd say wherryi too. But don't hold me to that!

    Why wherryi as opposed to the others? What are the distinguishing characteristics?

    It looks like my specimen of wherryi and it doesn't look like rubra rubra, jonesii or alabamensis. I guess it could also be gulfensis - which looks a lot like a taller version of wherryi.

    Not sure if this helps or not but here is a recent picture of what I received as S. alabamensis:
