    Hi Nick,
    If that was the plant you found on your travels, then that is S. purpurea ssp. purpurea. The ssp. stands for 'subspecies'

    My sarracenia looks like that except it's not that purple.Mine is an Saracenia purpurea x flava so that is most likely what it is. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I was just stunned by the coloration of this plant. It was a wondrous site to see. My wife even fell in love with them. ( she hates plants ).

    Thanks,
