    Ron, the ID on this plant is 100% accurate. NG was given the plant by one of the most knowledgable men in CP on the subject of s. oreophila. That would be Mike Catalani. Smart fella. He has even written that leaf is not how you judge the oreo. Their are soooo many similarities in the leaf, that judging a plant by leaf is not a good idea. He seems to think that flower height is the key. Oreo leaves are supposed to be taller than their flower, and flava, vice versa. However, I find fault in this assuption as well because my s. oreophila had flowers taller than the leaves on one plant, and shorter than the leaves on another. So another good theory out the window because of these plants inability to read. It is an s. oreophila, but the accuracy of telling the difference between s. oreophila and s. flava, is still up in the air. I do know the plant came from DeKalb County, Alabama. No s. flava there, so it is a good bet the plant is s. oreophila. You should have one in your collection. I will see if I can help.

    Well I find flavas have shorter flowers than the pitchers!

    It looks 100% oreo to me anyway. The shape of the nectar roll and the height of the neck are classic.

    I never knew what kind of a wonderful S. oreophila I was getting when Mike handed me that plant. The truth it is pure oreo as well is that it was going to be used in a restoration attempt, but something happened, and Mike wanted to give me a special treat for coming all the way to Tenn. from NY. Its something I will have for the rest of my life, I assure you that. I will NEVER let the plant die. Its a lifetime gift, from a heck of a great guy.

    EDIT

    Well, Alvin, I could have that backward too. Been a while since I read his work. Just the same, my oreo's did not meet the criteria anyway.

    As Bugweed mentioned, there is an excellent article by M. Catalani in the March 2004 CPN. For a reliable ID, you probably need to compare a number of traits (getting it from someone who knows the actual location helps to shortcut this process [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] )

    Article: flower taller than pitcher = Sarracenia oreophila. Phyllodia shape is also supposed to be quite reliable. But as Bugweed notes - the flower vs pitcher height is not 100% either. The author was only able to visit 3 stands for the article.

    The ICPS seedbank is an excellent source of seed (for what they have) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img] but I wouldn't make a definitive ID based on getting seed from there. There are just too many ways for mistakes to have been made along the way --- and anyone can send seed in...
    All the best,

    this year it flowered and the flower was in fact taller than the pitcher, the phyllodia all looked the same and curved backwards
