    Hey all I just wanted ot share my first pitchers of the season of all my Sarracenia! S. oreophila is by far the BEST spring performing Sarracenia in my opinion! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Also, this plant came from a very reputable source but I would like your input to be 100% sure. It was to be used in an S. oreophila restoration project but it was given to me as the restoration was put on hold...I assume this backs up the plants identity as they would only reintroduce a true S. oreophila back into habitat. Thanks and enjoy!

    EDIT: Also could anyone identify this as the typical or "Sand mountain" variety/forms? Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thank you Eric! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] My neighbors even said that about it when they walked into the greenhouse....but they didn't say "What a healthy looking S. oreophila!" They said "What a healthy pitcher plant!" I am surprized at myself...I am actually teaching my neighbors about these amazing plants...now if I could only get them to say Nepenthes infundibuliformis!

    Very nice looking plants, definitely my favorite Sarracenia
    species. Now we're on the subject, could anyone inform me
    if certain varieties or forms have reached (un)official
    subspecies status or nick-names (like we used to have with
    flava a few years ago - cut throuth,...)?

    Hi Frederick, the only variety's of S. oreophila that I am aware of are "Sand mountain" form , Typical form and a cultivar by Peter D'amato called S. oreophila "Don Schnell" which is a particulary vigorous and colorful clone. I don't think it was registered however.

    Does anyone else want to second my supporting evidence that this plant is indeed true S. oreophila? Thank you!

    I believe that Don Schnell is Sand Mtn and I also believe it is not an official cultivar but I might be mistaken on that.


    Oh... and... infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis infundibuliformis [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
