    To find the answer to this, and all such questions, go to the Carnivorous Plant Database at
    http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi

    But to answer your question, quoting the CP Database
    N: [Sarracenia * willisii {Hort.Veitch ex ?Gordon}]
    P: Gard.Mag.1894:410 (1894)
    S: =[[[Sarracenia purpurea {L.}] * [Sarracenia psittacina {Michx.}]] * [[[Sarracenia purpurea {L.}] * [Sarracenia flava {L.}]] * [Sarracenia purpurea {L.}]]]

    It is a complicated cross yes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The strange thing is that even though it is only 1/8th flava, the plant is a lot more upright than would be expected every time. Genetics work in weird ways.
