    Unhappy

    Vertigo and I were discussing....which sars have the tallest pitchers?

    I'm pretty sure the fattest (relative to height) is purpurea.

    I have found through my own collection, the flavas have the tallest pitchers. However, the leucophylla "Titan" cultivar bosts a 38 inch tall or more pitcher. My last post asked that question, does the "Titan" actually grow to that height?

    I would say a leuco wold be the tallest or a hybrid such as S.flava X S. leucophylla as the parents, or included in the cross.

    S.x moorei 'Brook's Hybrid' is generally regarded as growing the largest pitchers. This one is 1 metre tall:



    Mike King's has reached 42 1/2", but we'll see if that'll be beaten at this year's CPUK Tallest Pitcher Competition [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I was along the gulf coast this Memorial Day holiday and visited two native sarracenias sites and measured pitchers. Flava definately has my vote. We measured one 'Red Tube' at 40"X6" and a moorei cross at a wopping 50"X7.5"! Pictures to follow.

    I read somewhere that minor okee giants can get close to 4' tall in the wild - I am not sure though...
    My tallest are probably S. flava Cuprea, though they haven't gotten more than 30" tall. Maybe next year [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
