    Kevin,
    Are 100% sure that is a S. flava heavily veined? Looks like it could be a S. oreophila "Sand Mountain' form. Anybody else?

    I am 90% certain it is, the coloring is real dark on it, i give it alot of sun, ive never thought the possibility of it being an oreo, possibly, now that you talk about it, It looks as though it may have some in it........thanks,

    They are easily confused. At one point, they were thought to be the same species but different forms in different locations. The give away characterstic is the oreophila go dormant (the pitchers die off) in mid to late summer. My mistake.

    From the shape of the pitcher leaf I would say that it is clearly Sarracenia flava and not Sarracenia oreophila.

    If you compare them together you will probably notice that the shape of the pitcher is distinctive when they are seen together and this will assist in identification, though only a mother would know for sure.

    I don't know if anyone mentioned this and I may be completely off but don't S. flava's lids form a funnel like hole in the back of the pitcher? It funnels the rain down the back of the pitcher and eliminates it running into the pitcher mouth like other regular hoods do. S. oreophila's lids curl just a bit but nothing as exaggerated as S. flava. I personally am leaning towards S. oreophila for the coloration purposes myself and the fact that the lid doesn't form the 'flava funnel'.

    In S. oreophila the hood is offset from the mouth at about 80 degrees.
