    Definitely not a rubra flower unless antho-free.

    I've grown this plant 4-5 years. Pitchers get 12-18 inches tall, narrow pubescent looking with light veining. I haven't tried to identify it better until now. It could be an introgressed hybrid with S. alata.

    It would still have to be almost completely alata or a cross with an antho free specimen to get such pure yellow though.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    There have been reports of yellow flowered S. rubra wherryi with normal veining. Barry Rice discounts these having never seen one. But what's the saying? "The absence of proof is not the proof of absence."

    Here's one of the small (4-6 inch) pitchers left over from last year that didn't get trimmed off. The plant is normally behind my group of S. leucophylla which act as a wind break. Unfortunately they also cut out a lot of the sun so coloration isn't all that it could be.

    S. oreophila minor - have not been able to determine if this is the same clone as the recently named cultivar 'Godzuki' the flowers and pitchers do not open simultaneously which is a trait described on the write up .



    Technically is it a flower S. leucophylla 'Tarnok'. They're going nuts this year
