(I have no idea which...
I have a division of "Leah Wilkerson" I would like to trade!

Garden Factory, on Buffalo Road in Gates (west side of the city)
has some decent Sarracenia marked down to $2 each!
a few are in rough shape, but some are still nice..
they only have three varieties, and only about 10-15 plants total..
Years ago..maybe 7-10 years ago, the ICPS had an offer of Sarracenia rubra ssp. alabamensis plants..the goal was to get a lot of plants out in cultivation, as a means to help save the very endangered variety..
