    I guess that is a Sarracenia moorei , but it's got more genes leucophylla than flava... but it could be 100% S. leucophylla too

    No, flavas were present in this bog as it is possibly too far west for flava. I am sure this is not a pure leuco. There were alata and rubra present as well as pisttacenia and purp. My guess is it has purp. blood in it WAY back for the pink eye and rubra blood because of the hood shape. Any other thoughts?

    Just read the last post, that looks to me an introgressed hybrid between alata and leucophylla so the red throat of alata is showing with the more dominant leuco colouring. Here is one that is similar in my own collection:


    These kind of planrts do add to the flavour of variation in Sarracenia.

    I am tending to agree with Mike that it may not be 100% leuco, but rather something that's been backcrossed. Say, for instance, something like leuco x (leuco x (leuco x (leuco x alata)))) But then again, it very well could be a pure leuco. Definitely something worthy of registering, and getting into mass production!!! I will be impatiently waiting.........

    Hey Brooks

    Really beautiful plant. Where did you say you found it? Growing in a bog near where you live?

    It must be pretty amazing to stumble across such a naturally occurring beauty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
