    Help with rosea

    Hi Guys!!!

    Hows everyone fairing with the weather changing I volunteer at ABG usually working in the orchid center and ahd some free time the other day so I wandered around and looked at the back collection of sarrs. well one of the purpureas caught my eye as it was the BIGGEST REDDEST thing on the table immediatley i had to look at the tag purpurea ssp venosa burkii. Ive been doing a lot of research and there seems to be a back in forth about it being S. Rosea. Well anyway im not to worried about names I just love the look of it and how squat the pitchers are. Ive also read a post on here that said their normal venosa gets just as big as the burkii pitchers is that true? If not does anyone know where I might find a burkii syn rosea ??Im the kinda guy that like BIG leaves and flowers so naturally want anything with the largest pitchers I can find haha Already got a leah wilkerson(THANKS BROOKS)!!! ANyway just checking in with thoughts.

    hope all is well THANKS,
    Cody

    Burkii (never gone with the rosea name myself) pitchers tend to have larger, more undulating hoods. A big venosa could reach a similar size to burkii, but in general, burkii's pitchers are larger.

    You ask "Where may I find a burkii syn rosea?" I think you already found one!! In fact, ABG has a fantastic Sarracenia collection and some Sarracenia experts! Talk to them!!
    I was only at ABG once and loved it. I was lucky enough to be there in the Spring, when the native azaleas were in bloom and the Sarracenia were just waking up. This botanist would love to work or volunteer there. Enjoy!
