    purple seeds from a sar?!?

    Hey All,

    I harvested some seeds from my s. x'Catesbaei' (did I spell that right?) this weekend, and to my shock, they are PURPLE!

    I've only ever seen beige/tan sar seeds. Has anyone else ever gotten purple seeds?

    Photo caption from the ICPS website:
    Sarracenia seeds over a 1 mm ruler. The color differences are not diagnostic. Seed from the same plant can range from purple to brown to tan.

    Lol, so has anyone gotten purple seeds from a plant without S. purpurea in it? I remember reading that they could be purple, but I always thought it was a slight tint, how purple are they?
