    I've posted pics of these plants here and elsewhere previously, but now I have blooms to go along with the pitchers. To view them, go to my growlist link at the bottom of this message, and click on the 'Many Unknowns' link near the bottom. Feel free to email your guesses (link at bottom of page) or post them here. Thanks.

    #1 looks like Alata x Flava x Rubra to me.

    #2 looks like Leuco x Rubra and maby a little Flava influence as well.

    #3 looks like a definate Flava x Alata

    #4 Purpurea x Leuocphylla and maby a little Rubra as well.

    Hi Sarracenia,
    #1 is definately Sarracenia alata. It has a pure yellow flower, distinctive 'bulge' below the peristome, no evidence of any species hybridization.
    #2 looks like alata x leucophylla, reason is flower colour is more or less in between, wavy lid from leuco, thin green peristome from alata and bulge below is alata hall mark
    #3 is alata 'red lid' x flava, strong yellow flower is deeper than alata
    #4 is mitcheliana, it could be back croosed with purpurea venosa, but it is too early in season to see how deeply coloured it gets.
