Thanks Eric!

Last year, fellow Sarracenia grower Eric Morrow sent me small divisions from a few of his plants. These plants are still young divisions (not of blooming maturity yet), but they are maturing quite nicely. Thanks, Eric!

A beautiful red moorei cross done by Oliver Bres, seed grown by Eric Morrow and named for Eric’s daughter. This is still a small division and I’m really excited to see this as it matures. The parentage is S. leucophylla – “purple and white giant” x flava v. rubricorpora

Inverse Veined Moorei

Back in 2010, fellow Sarracenia grower James Soe Nuyn of Lost In The Landscape did a brilliant cross which has resulted (in my humble opinion) in a very elegant moorei. The cross is Sarracenia leucophylla “burgundy” x flava v. maxima. I noticed that a few crosses with flava v. maxima with a stronger colored plant sometimes come up with similar results. Not sure all flava var. maxima’s will do this though.

As the new pitchers unfold and begin to color up, the green veins light up quite nicely against the gentle pink and white of the pitcher. Lovely work, James! I am a fan.
