    My Sar Grow List and Question

    S. Luecophylla "Tarnok"
    S. Purpurea
    S. "Judith Hindle"
    S. Scarlette Belle
    S. Rubra
    S. x "Dana's Delight"
    S. 'Doodle Bug'
    S. 'Lady Bug'
    S. 'Love Bug'
    S. 'Red Bug'
    S. x catesbaei
    S. WRIGLEYANA
    S. DIXIE LACE
    S. MARDI GRAS
    S. Flava (yellow trumpet)
    S. Minor
    S. "Starry Night"
    S. Alata red throat x flava
    S. (Rubra x Oreophila) x (Oreophyla x Flava)
    S. Alata x Minor
    S. Bog Witch
    S. White Sparkler
    S. Rubra Gulfensis (anthocyanin free)
    S. Snake Charmer
    S. Mitchelliana X Willisii
    S. Ladies in Waiting
    S. Flava
    S. Luecophylla x Willissii


    That is my grow list of named sars. I have about 20 that don't have tags and I don't know what they are. In the spring I plan to take pics of them and ask for IDs so I can get them all labeled.

    Right now my question is, can anyone help me with iding these plants a little further? What I mean is, the ones that are named Ladies in Waiting, Starry Night, Bog Witch, etc. - can anyone tell me the crosses that make up these plants? The Bug collection, etc. What plants were crossed to make these plants? I would like to add that info to my list so I will know more about the plants that I have.

    Also, any that are listed with the cross name and not a common name, can anyone tell me if common names for those exist? I would hate to purchase a plant by its common name only to find out it is exactly the same plant I had but I have it listed by cross names instead. Does this make sense?

    Please don't guess, if you aren't sure your answer is right, don't tell me because I don't want to mislabel anything. I would appreciate all the help I can get in properly labeling all my plants. Thanks!

    Have you check the cp photo finder? A lot of the cultivars will have the crosses labeled at the top of the page. For example:
    S. 'Mardi Gras' is listed as (leucophylla x purpurea) x (leucophylla x psittacina)
    S. 'Wrigleyana' is listed as [psittacina x leucophylla]
    etc...

    I've never heard of that - what is the CP photo finder? Where do I find it?

    I am trying to figure out how to use it. I have found some of them on there, and had updated my list with the cross info. I still can't find info for starry night, bog witch, or snake charmer. So if anyone knows that makes these crosses, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    The ICPS newsletter lists the official descriptions of Sarracenia cultivars, I believe. The person that developed or registered the cultivar doesn't always know what the cross is, but the information is usually there in the description if it's anywhere.

    Cultivars in " " are not yet registered, while those in ' ' are, so you may have a more difficult time finding the origins of those that are not. Such as S. "Starry Night" and S. "Bog Witch". Others may just be too new, I've never heard of S. "Snake Charmer" before.

    Your best bet would be to see if you can track down where it came from or mass post in forums with the hopes that the person who created it will chime in and help you out. Like seedjar said, in some cases plants are the results of open pollination so you may not have a direct answer. Example would be S. 'Cobra Nest'. -- Parentage unknown

    The only accurate method of knowing each plant's genealogy is to purchase it from someone who knows it's background.** Doing anything else is guessing (no matter how much of an educated guess) & results in inaccurate labeling - which contributes to many mislabeled plants when traded or sold.

    While it obviously hurts no one to ask for people's educated guesses as to what parents any plant may have had - I would stop short of using those guesses as a true ID. There are far too many complex hybrids out there whose backgrounds cannot be determined - even many simple hybrids are practically impossible to determine with certainty ... JMO

    ** - assuming hybrids. Most pure species can probably be identified with reasonable accuracy...
