    Absolutely! There is much variation with Serracenia hybrids. This is where it gets FUN!

    Adding to the fun... I can now tell for sure that my S. 'Leah Wilkerson' is sending up a flower stalk too.

    I wonder what I should do with it... I think a Sarracenia 'Leah Wilkerson' alata "Black Tube" might be in order. Here's a shot of my S. alata from last year when I first got it... As you can see, it was not too happy at the time. It was being grown in the Central Valley, which means (a) the humidity was practically nonexistant, and (b) it was probably grown in at least part shade to combat the desiccating lack of humidity. So consequently, the pitchers weren't as dark or beautiful as they should have been. Also, the rhizome was severely cramped in the pot and the back was beginning to rot. This year it seems happy and it'll look a lot better!
