    "Purple pitcher" from Lowes

    I purchased an unknown Sarracenia sp. from Lowes and the label just says "Purple pitcher" without any Latin name. My first guess is S. purpurea because of the common name but any ideas?

    One of our Lowe's here has 1 of those left. The thing is about triple that size with 8 pitchers. It's in great shape, but not high on my 'Must Save From The Rack' list.. I'm still waiting on them to get their next order in so I can get my 2 darlingtonias that I paid for almost 2 weeks ago.

    pS.. I almost forgot to say,"CONGRATS!"

    This one isn't in the best of shape...just noticed one of the pitchers is ripped almost all the way across the tube part. They had a few VFTs left and a single D. adelae that looked pretty sad. For $5 I figured it was worth nursing back to health.

    Nice pickup, Pappy! I bet with a little love it'll be just fine.
