    I think Brooks Hybrid is a form of S. x moorei, but I may be wrong. I am looking for a start of this one too. However, despite it's rep of being the tallest of the Sarracenia, I believe Her Majesty Leah stands above them all at some 50 inches (!!!!!!!!!) in the field where she holds court.

    leah is the best moorei, but Brooks Garcia was over in England 2 weeks ago and visited me. He showed me some moorei from the same bog on the Jim Miller DVD and all I could do was drool.

    It's hard to pick one, but my favorites (in no order) are:

    'Adrian Slack'
    'Leah Wilkerson'

    Even though I don't own those two yet, the pics I've seen are absolutely stunning. And they were both naturally made too, which is pretty cool.

    I also like the following that were created at UNC-Charlotte:

    'Doodle Bug'
    'Blackened Redfish'
    'Dixie Lace'

    I don't think blackened redfish is technically a cultivar, since it hasn't been officially registered.

    I also have a plant I got from D. Crump in Charlotte, NC, called 'Bug Pipes'

    It's another favorite. It's a naturally made minor x psittacina that is very striking. It also is technically not a cultivar, since it hasn't been registered (to my knowledge).

    And last, but not least, is the 'Skywatcher' from the romanowski book. i've always liked the umlauftiana's.

    Wow, that flava 'Burgandy' is incredible.

    I gave up on keeping track of all the hybrids, but 'Judith Hindle' is my first Sarr hybrid love, and probably always will be. I saw it at California Carnivores when i was just getting back into CPs and was amazed at the purple/mauve (?) coloration.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    I'm with sarracenia, "Leah Wilkerson" and "Adrian Slack" are exactly my two favorites as well. Can't beat x moorei's.

    Drives me nuts, too, because to the best of my knowledge, both are still privately owned and unreleased. I'll sure be first in line when they're publicly available though.
