A cross I did in 2012, showing off some nifty coloration!

Sarracenia “Saurus”

Sarracenia “Saurus” never ceases to amaze me. This select cross of S. leucophylla “Purple Lips” x flava var. ornata was done by the legendary Phil Faulisi. I remember when I first saw this beast of a plant at Phil’s place in 2009 – I had to pick my jaw off the floor. I jokingly told Phil, “Phil – dude that thing is a Sarracenia-Saurus!” He then goes “Dude, you know what? You just named that plant!”

The pitchers on my division this year got to over 30 inches. If the plant wasn’t divided, they would of gotten close to the 40 inches that it normally attains. (See Phil’s post here.)

The pitchers below are fresh fall pitchers that recently opened up this past week. They will color up and get dark as the season rolls on. You can see the pitcher on the right in the first photo starting to darken up. For the time being, I’m enjoying the beautiful contrast of the veins as they lace up the pitcher. Simply amazing! As always, brilliant work, Phil!

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.
