    I have "Snake Charmer". The cross is (((Psittacina x Rubra Wherryi) x unknown Rubra) x Minor var Okefenokeensis).

    I've seen people label S. x "dana's delight" as S. leucophylla x willissii. I'm not sure how accurate that is. I would stick with x "dana's delight". I've also seen people label S. x "scarlet belle" as S. x "wrigleyana". It has cultivar status for a reason, I don't know what you gain by naming it something else.

    S. x "white sparkler" is S. (jonesii X purpurea) X leucophylla. S. x "ruffled sparkler" is also S. (jonesii X purpurea) X leucophylla. For that reason (among others) I wouldn't recommend labeling your white sparkler by its parents.

    Thanks guys! I want to know the parentage just for my own purposes and so I don't accidentally duplicate plants. Some of these are expensive to buy, and I don't want to waste it on a plant that I already have. Some people sell them by their parentage info, and some by the cultivar name. So I want both for my plants just so I can hopefully not duplicate plants when I am purchasing. Most people who sell them are knowledgeable about parentage, but on ebay not everyone is, and that is where I mostly look.

    I just got a handful of those Botanique hybrids: "ruffled sparkler" "white sparkler" "red sumatra" "titan" "fuchsia". I'm excited to see them in action.

    I'm not sure, I just got it in trade and it is dormant. I can't wait to see it this spring.

    The "Bug" series are trade-marked/patent pending and are creations of Dr. Larry Mellichamp at the University of North Carolina Botanical Gardens. Some information can be found in the US Patent Office database or queries can be addressed to Dr. Mellichamp.

    Hi Back2eight,

    Nice collection of sarrs! Good job.

    It's nice to know the crosses that make up hybrids. It helps me determine the influences that each of the parents has made and helps in decision-making for future crosses I might make in years to come. If you haven't attempted this yet, you probably will.

    Now...I hope I'm not insulting you here: make sure you understand the difference between the name given to a cross made between sarracenia...and a cultivar name (this is the "common name" you mention. Sarracenia x wrigleyana is the name given to Sarracenia leucophylla x psittacina. Any cross made between these two plants is called x wrigleyana. When a grower has a really special x wrigleyana that displays unique physical or cultural characteristics, he/she gives that plant a cultivar name . Therefore, a leucophylla x psittacina made by another grower is both the same and different. It's a wrigleyana by cross definition, but not a 'Scarlet Belle,' for example. which is a cultivar of wrigleyana.

    I keep track of cross names, cultivar names, and the lineage of my sarracenia for the exact reason you do. I just want to know what I have in my collection. I keep track, though, so that I can keep very accurate records when I cross plants every growing season.

    As your collection grows, be sure to keep these records stored somewhere and assign a number to each of your plants so you can keep them separate. I have a number of flava ornatas, for example, and assign a different number to each so I can track where they came from, how long they've been in my collection,...

    Good luck...good growing!

    Yes, Oz, thats exactly right! I haven't made any crosses, but I do like to know what they are so I can have as detailed information as possible. Thanks for that info.
