    Too funny! I just this moment logged off of a web site that mentioned that very plant They are in NC and say of 'Brunswick Beauty' that it had pinkish new pitchers that turn burgandy as they age. Sounds lovely. Oh, it is TCed so it should grow rather vigorously and clump nicely. They did not say what the orgin of the plant is or if it is offically registered as a cultivar. Sounds good. I gotta have that one too! (imagine)

    Schloaty, you're thinking of the S. purpurea var. intergrade.

    Hi Darcie! I'm a newcomer to the forums. I visit the Meijer Gardens quite often with my family. We're due to make our first trip of the season within the next week or two. The CP room is awsome. I spend a great deal of time finding new bogs/fenns to study. The northern purp, ssp.purperea takes on an astounding appearance the farther north you travel in Michigan. I live in SW lower Michigan in Berrien county. The purps we have down hear are the classic type; fairly tall, shorter hoods with little "ruffling" and narrow waistlines. Last saturday I was in a bog/fenn just a few miles southwest of Traverse City. The purps looked like big venosa. Huge ruffled collars, fat bellies and bright red veination. There were hundreds of them too. Do you ever field study? Our area is a goldmine for wild purps.
