Sarracenia ‘Adrian Slack’ x ‘Judith Hindle’

Here’s a really striking cross that was done by Mike Wang. There’s a few beauties that resulted from this crossing such as Mike’s select clone S. “Elaine Wang.” I’ll post a few more photos of the siblings of the below plant once their pitchers are open. This particular one started the season off with a bang! Great work, Mike!

A couple of recently opened pitchers from this stylish S. flava. The veins make this plant appear as if it is sporting some pin stripes! Those veins also will get darker as the season progresses.

Sarracenia (leucophylla “Purple Lips” x flava var. rubricorpora) x ‘Adrian Slack’

A young plant from a cross I did some years ago. Not of blooming age yet. The mother/pod parent plant – Sarracenia (leucophylla “Purple Lips” x flava var. rubricorpora) – is a fantastic red moorei bred by Phil Faulisi. There are some interesting variations going on with the siblings, and I’ll post some photos later on in the season. For now here’s one of the larger plants from the bunch. There’s some great coloration going on right now with this one.

Sarracenia “Green Monster” x alata f. viridescens

Last year there was this one cross I almost forgot about until I stumbled upon it during clean up. Yeah! I just love it when that happens! It was S. “Green Monster” x alata f. viridescens (the anthocyanin free form of S. alata). You can see last year’s pitchers in this post. This year a little bit more character can be seen in the plant. I really like how it has been developing. I enjoy how the windows from S. “Green Monster” are combined with the bulbous shape in the upper portion of the pitcher thanks to the S. alata f. viridescens influence. It is still not of blooming age yet; perhaps it will be next year or the year after. This particular plant is one of the larger ones from the litter. The other siblings look similar and are a little smaller. I’m grading those babies out and hoping for some nice surprises from the batch! :)

Sarracenia ‘Vintner’s Treasure’

A recently opened pitcher of Sarracenia ‘Vintner’s Treasure’.  The color will intensify and deepen to a very rich deep maroon/purple as the pitcher ages.
A Phil Faulisi creation – more information on this wonderful cultivar can be found on the ICPS website.
