    I found one stand of S. rubra subsp. wherryi in the wild. Is it a miniture like sarr (sorry never had one). The mature pitchers were only 8 inches tall at the most and 2.5 inches wide. Most pitchers were about 5 inches tall. The few flowers that were fully out were only and inch or so across and red. I moved a little dirt away from a rhizome of one (put it back later) to see the rhizome growth and for the inch of two that I would see the rhizome grew almost strait down. Only a few plants had new pitchers the others were all dead. Also in this bog was S. leucophylla, S. psitticneia[Edit: corrected, S. psittacina], and I found at one hybrid with S. psitticnia[Edit: corrected, S. psittacina] but I am not sure what it was with. I thought the rubra wherryi[Edit: corrected, S. rubra subsp. wherryi] info was interesting because the plant I bought at KBG could have been either alabamansis[Edit: corrected, S. alabamensis] or wherryi[Edit: corrected, S. rubra subsp. wherryi]. But now I think it must be wherryi[Edit: corrected, S. rubra subsp. wherryi] because it was much bigger then the wherryi[Edit: corrected, S. rubra subsp. wherryi] I saw.

    Yes they are very small Pitcher, and flowers alike. I have a 17 yr. ols speciman from bugweed that has 23 flowers on it. It takes MUCH patients to pollinate them. Fourtunately no other flowers are open yet so no chance of cross pollination.
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive

    Pingman, if you want to get technical, and follow the ICPS database, it should be
    Sarracenia rubra subsp. alabamensis

    So they only grow 5-6 inches? Thats about how tall all these were. Then UI wonder what the plants were that were inbetween the leuco and wherryi heights?
