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 leucophylla "Juju Lips"
Sarracenia leucophylla “Juju Lips”
A clone I received from Jacob Farin. He coined the term “Juju Lips” which is Hawaiian slang for “Big Lips”.

The stocky thick  pitcher combined with late season color quickly made this particular clone a favorite out of the batch.

Here’s another seedling from the same batch of seed. It doesn’t appear as thick as the other one, but still a beautiful plant. And it’s hungry too. That fly later became lunch.

Leucophylla – The Fall Classic

OH YEAH! I am still BUZZING from the SF Giant’s win last night — clinching the NL Pennant! Next stop: World Series - The Fall Classic. A magical time of year. If you’ve been following my (ever increasing SF Giants influenced) tweets you’ll know that I pull for this team and represent in my garden here, pollination here, 2011 parallels here, pitcher plant companion catcher plant here, and Sarracenia SF Giants tattoo here. Be sure to check out this very awesome post: Why Gardening is Just Like Baseball – by John Markowski.

In light of The Fall Classic, I wanted to share some images of another fall classic: Sarracenia leucophylla. Fall is the season when these plants (and their hybrids) really shine. They put out their best pitchers during this season – almost as if to celebrate an epic season, and give us one last hurrah before heading off into their winter rest.

Enjoy the photos…and as always: LET’S GO GIANTS!
