Back in late 2010, I received seeds from fellow Sarracenia enthusiast and breeder, James Soe Nuyn of Lost in the Landscape. Among the seeds that were sent to me were Sarracenia flava “Widemouth” x flava var. ornata “Black Veins”- Bulloch Co., GA and Sarracenia leucophylla “Burgundy” x flava var. maxima.
I started the seeds in 2011, however with all of the transition last year, I was afraid that I may of lost these babies. As I was sorting and cleaning the seedling tables, I’m glad that I was able to once again be re-united with them. Lost and now found!
In going back through archives and notes, I saw that James was going for a flava with attitude with the first cross: a wide mouth and strong black veins. In using flava var. maxima with the other cross, James was going for a moorei clone with “strong smeared coloring and without a lot of veining (or maybe even light-on-dark veining).” The plants are young but I can see that he’s on target with both of them. It will be fun watching these seedlings evolve. Thanks again, James!
