Leucophylla – The Fall Classic

OH YEAH! I am still BUZZING from the SF Giant’s win last night — clinching the NL Pennant! Next stop: World Series - The Fall Classic. A magical time of year. If you’ve been following my (ever increasing SF Giants influenced) tweets you’ll know that I pull for this team and represent in my garden here, pollination here, 2011 parallels here, pitcher plant companion catcher plant here, and Sarracenia SF Giants tattoo here. Be sure to check out this very awesome post: Why Gardening is Just Like Baseball – by John Markowski.

In light of The Fall Classic, I wanted to share some images of another fall classic: Sarracenia leucophylla. Fall is the season when these plants (and their hybrids) really shine. They put out their best pitchers during this season – almost as if to celebrate an epic season, and give us one last hurrah before heading off into their winter rest.

Enjoy the photos…and as always: LET’S GO GIANTS!

  1. You got to be excited about that first game…specifically Sandoval’s 3 HR game

    • Hi Josh – for sure man! Not just that but just so many aspects of the game. Zito being awesome, Timmy coming in, the spectacular defense… so amazing. All against Verlander! So awesome. There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done – series isn’t over yet, but I love the tone this game has set!

  2. Nice Leucos!
