Sarracenia leucophylla "Red"
Sarracenia leucophylla “Red” – clone received from Phil Faulisi. Fall pitcher recently opened and pitcher will get a darker shade of red as it matures. I really enjoy that dipping lip that it has.

Sarracenia flava – Anthocyanin Free

Here are some examples of AF (Anthocyanin Free, or all green) Sarracenia flava. Now, these are not to be confused with S. flava var. maxima, which still contains anthocyanin, and therefore S. flava var. maxima is not an AF plant. The red pigment in S. flava var. maxima can be visible in the grow points of the new pitchers that are forming, as well as on damaged portions of the plant (such as pitchers, phyllodia, and/or flower stalk.) The plants below are still young and unfortunately have not bloomed for me yet. Maybe next year? I have hopes to use them in future breeding projects and create new lines of AF flava. Fingers crossed!

Sarracenia leucophylla “Wilkerson’s Red Rocket”

Sarracenia leucophylla season is in full swing here, and you’ll be seeing more leucophylla elegance in the upcoming posts! Sarracenia leucophylla “Wilkerson’s Red Rocket” is an outstanding leucophylla that I received from Brooks Gracia. (Thanks Brooks!) This beauty hails from the Bud Wilkerson property – North Walton Co., FL.  I’m sad to report that Brooks tells me that the bog is pretty much extinct now due to drought and cattle. I’m thankful that we have people like Brooks that are helping to maintain and preserve these genetics.
