    Hmmm, I smell an antho-free x chelsonii (purp x rubra subsp.) Will you be crossing those?

    I agree that its a type of Rosea, I was just wondering if it's the "cream" flower variety. I don't think I've ever seen a flower from a "Big Mamma" before and I was wondering if anyone else had. It is in the sun Yann and it's opening up today but still very white. I'll post another pic in a day or two.

    I could try? I've never had Sarrs before, so I've never done this pollination thing. Mostly I've decided to try to see if they'll just...self pollinate, or if the wee critters here in San Diego know what to do with Sarr flowers. ...long winded, I could try if you'd like me to

    Update!

    I have:
    1 S. oreophila bud... no wonder it's only woken up now!
    1 S. rubra gulfensis bud... it's almost open!
    1 S. jonesii bud... I plan to make some pure jonesii seed with this one.
    1 S. 'Hummer's Hammerhead' bud... I knew Andrew's plants were too good to be true!

    I am going to be making some pure oreophila seed with Frilleon and pure jonesii seed with cp-connection if all goes well.

    I found my first bud yesterday evening on my Flava Copper Top. I'm pretty excited. We had a light frost last night, so hopefully it won't die off. I'll need to watch for that more closely, you can never tell what the weater will throw at you here in Cleveland! The spring bulbs all look fine though, I would imagine Sarracenia to be just as hardy.
