    Thats another real key, the phyllodia almost always give away S. oreophila. Mike said that was another key element, but not the single only one.

    That is a really gorgeous oreo, NG.

    The two I'm growing (the only two I've managed to come by), are more "normal," green with some red veining, squatty pitchers.

    Very nice plant!

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    Wonderful plant NG!

    Doesn't S. oreophila have a slightly different seasonal habit? According to some texts and personal observations, they start going dormant in mid-late summer, when it's still hot and muggy. Am I completely out of date on this information or does it still apply?

    Cheers

    From my experience with my 2 oreo clones, they only pitcher in late April/early May, and by June the leaves are browning. Obviously, compared with alata, rubra, leuco...this is an early season.

    My flavas don't necessarily pitcher later, but they tend to hold their leaves longer than oreophila.

    Dustin,
    Like the cultivar name. Save it for your best oreo hybrid!
    Can't comment on the oreos, but we have noticed that flavas pitcher at different times depending on the original location. As an example, flava from Sandy creek are always late, as they are in nature. They are easily six weeks behind the typical rugelii. Perhaps oreos from different sites will vary too?

    Really? My Sandy Creek red tube has pitchers growing which are at about the same stage as my other flavas.
