    Before we get too far into what we should label this plant as, do not forget that to denote a name in the single quotes 'red' would be indicating a registered cultivar. As far as I have read, this plant is not a registered cultivar, so no where in its name should a registered cultivar designation be indicated. For example, S. leucophylla 'red' would indicate to others this plant is a registered cultivar.
    I would be in favor or using an x somewhere in the name to indicate it is a hybridized plant.

    Agreed, and some question marks to show that the I.D. is not 100% certain.

    I have a quick question. What does Willisii refer to? Is it a different plant from the S. leucophylla red were are posting about? How would these names work?

    S. leucophylla x willisii
    or
    S. x willisii

    These are just ideas.

    There has been lengthy discussion here and elsewhere on the confusing use (misuse) of the name willisii.

    According to the ICPS Database
    Sarracenia x willisii (Hort.Veitch ex ?Gordon) is a complex hybrid [((purpurea*psittacina)*(purpurea*flava))*purpurea]

    The plant that is now commonly being called
    S. "willisii" or S. x "willisii"
    clearly has a strong influence of leucophylla, which is not a parent of the official S. x willisii.

    For links to a number of photos of this confusing plant, see

    To me the plant looks like an introgressed hybrid likely with S. rubra somewhere down the line. It could even be purpurea. There are some nice red tube examples of these in cultivation, but 'willisii' it is not!

    The cultivar is a Leuco x Willisii
    I've also heard it referred to as S. "Dana's Delight"
