    Brooks informed me that the plant was discovered near Citronelle and that area has alata present. When I visited the bog last year, there were many intermediate plants between the 2 species. It was really fascinating to see all the intergrades between them. That plant is a definate beauty.

    Neato! Since the pink eye name is taken, I'd call it "strep throat!"

    'Strep Throat' is also taken by an associate of mine. Drat! Any suggestions for a name? Yes, this plant was found in a bog in Citronelle, AL. Jim Miller and I visited this site back in early Sept. If you are not aware of the video Jim did on native CPs of the Gulf Coast you should look into it. I am excited as my DVD is to arrive this week. And, I was there! The reason I bring this up is I revisited this site a month and a half later and this is what I found (see attached pic). I was literally sick to my stomach when I saw this. I told Jim this is why his work is so important to at least preserve some of these plant on tape for others to see.

    This was one of the better bogs, you can see from Brooks' photo how impressive the fall pitchers look compared to Spring/Summer pitchers of the same bog from my trip last year:

    If the thing is still around...I'd probably call it either "Blusher" or "Red Blush"

    Absolutely stunning plants and photos. What a sight it must be to see them in the wild like that.
