    In the wild, S. minor and S. psittacina hybridize with each other more commonly (S. x formosa) than the others. A large population of S x. formosa is known from Charlton Co., GA, and a smaller population from Franklin Co., FL.

    S. minor x flava (S. x harperi) has been found in South Carolina and Georgia, and S. flava x S. psittacina has been found (at least twice) in Franklin Co., FL as well.

    I don't know the circumstances of most of these sites, although in my experience, hybridization tends to occur more frequently in areas of disturbance (e.g. roadside mowing).

    Even without disturbance, however, I have seen late-flowering S. alatas in Mississippi overlapping with early-flowering S. psittacinas, and hybrids of the two, as well as what I assume to be introgressant hybrids (e.g. S. alatas with pink flowers) have been seen in the area.

    Sarracenia flowers are typically pollinated by bumblebees, and I have read that a mile is about the limit of their travel.

    Hope this helps.

    Is there really a recorded hybrid between oreophila and rubra? Towns Co. seems awfully far away from Taylor, Peach, etc.

    The rest I have in my collection, so I know that they exist :-).

    Oreophila does not occur naturally with any other species of Sarracenia, so no natural hybrids are known with that species. Perhaps once when its range was larger, but not now.
    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.
