Some shots of my neglected Sarracenia - seems to be a good year for them, we had a lot of rain this last winter. I owe a lot of my collection to the generosity of others on this forum :hail:

<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/61904224@N05/35213560200/in/dateposted-public/" title="Sarracenia rosea f. luteola"><img src="https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4260/35213560200_be9cb73452_z.jpg" width="427" height="640" alt="Sarracenia rosea f. luteola"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Sarracenia rosea f. luteola - a very bright yellow. This plant came from seeds given to me from someone on this forum many years ago... I sowed and killed all of them promptly in my beginner's ignorance, but was smart enough to leave a single seed in the refrigerator, which I germinated and grew out in high school. Lucky break!

S. 'Adrian Slack' x 'Schnell's Ghost' - not a spectacular plant but quite tall. This one was quite a poor grower until this year; when I picked it up in the fall many years back, the hoods had a nice plum flush which also seems to be coming back a little.

S. 'Moore's Melody' (alata x rosea natural hybrid) - this seems to be a pretty rare cultivar, but is very nice. As per the cultivar description, this plant keeps its pitchers immaculate over the entire winter in mild climates.

My first and oldest Sarracenia is a NOID hybrid that came from our very own Pyro for postage - a very nostalgic plant for me

A stout S. oreophila Sand Mt. with great coloration from the legendary Brokken himself; phyllodia are starting to come in on all four of my S. oreophila

S. oreophila Sand Mt., Mike Wang #4 - a huge and shapely S. oreophila that is consistently my tallest plant (thanks again Zu!)

An interesting S. flava from North Carolina; this plant has very thick pitchers and quite a unique narrow shape and rolled column and lid

S. leucophylla - I'm told this is probably a Mike Wang plant and probably also a Hurricane Creek White, but can't confirm. This came from a UC Davis plant sale.

That unidentified hybrid is charming. Seems froglike with that thick upper tube and that lid.

I've been ignoring this S. leucophylla x purpurea but it's really coming into its own this year.

<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/61904224@N05/36186265402/in/dateposted-public/" title="Sarracenia alata (Tyler Co., TX)"><img src="https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4388/36186265402_e9054169b3.jpg" width="333" height="500" alt="Sarracenia alata (Tyler Co., TX)"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Lots of S. alata (Tyler Co., TX) - I should have plenty of this plant available soon, it only takes about a year for it to break whatever pot it's in. Maybe too robust for its own good.
