I was just thinking about a plant I am trying to breed. Is there any sarras that look like a purp and have light windows like a leucophylla?
like straight up purp? cant recall, but not impossible. will take many introgressed crosses between both leucophylla and purpurea, but mostly purpurea.
If one seeks light windows, why not add minor to the mix?
It's a tough life being a Sarracenia farmer

I saw them for sale at the ICPS 2012 show. Not as dramatic a color change "windows" as a regular Leuco,
but definately there!
I don't think I have any pics of the ones I saw, but I will give my stuff a lookie.
(Don't remember who it was that had them either.)
Perhaps someone else saw them & remembers?
Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
S. x mitchelliana x purpurea have small amounts of light windows in them.
These are the crosses I was thinking of making are:
S. X excellens x (X mitchelliana x purpurea) and more S. 'Umlauftiana' x purpurea
and when they are mature I will cross both together.
