Sarracenia leucophylla and friends

This year is really flying by. It felt like it was only moments ago where I had fresh spring pitchers and flowers in the Asylum… now I’m seeing more S. leucophylla and S. leucophylla hybrids starting to show their pitchers off. Tis’ the season! Here’s a few S. leucophylla and friends to greet the arrival of August…

Still a very young seedling. They all used to be uber crowded in one pot…
that is until I placed them in group trays. Now they’ll have a little bit more time before getting crowded again. See the second photo of this post. There’s a few others out of this batch that are showing some really nice promise. Stay tuned. :)

One of my crosses from a couple of years ago. Showing some character now.

The Sarracenia leucophylla influence via S. ‘Kilimanjaro’ shines through on
new fresh pitchers, but as it ages it darkens to a rich deep red. Such a nice plant.

Summer Update Photo Dump

Hello all you beautiful people! Yeahhh, I know — It seems like it has forever since I’ve posted anything here. Yeah, things have been pretty busy outside of the garden the past couple of months but rest assured I still make time to go down and recharge my soul in The Asylum. The plants are all still doing good, but it’s that weird in-between time for me now. Spring pitchers already are burning out (thanks to my early season start) and pitchers of the autumn-indulging plants are just starting to form. Anyway – here’s a quick and dirty photo-update-reel from the past few weeks.

Sarracenia oreophilaSarracenia oreophila – for the most part the spring pitchers are gone. Still a pitcher here and there looking ok.

Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' - clone F x 'Adrian Slack'Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Hurricane Creek White’ – clone F x ‘Adrian Slack’ I had this one seriously cramped pot of of these seedlings and repotted those seedlings into these four trays. You can see the old foliage all floppy n’ crud but they’re all throwing up new pitchers. Should be a pretty interesting cross.

Thanks Eric!FREAKIN’… THANK YOU ERIC!! So not that long ago a really awesome surprise came in the mail from Eric Morrow. After a somewhat really bad week for me, this surprise was a huge pick-me-up. By the way – check out Eric’s Instagram feed for some Sarracenia-heavy updates: @sarraceniacrazy!

Another neat little seedling of a cross I did that is reacting well to the repotting from earlier this year.

Sarracenia leucophylla "Hanrahan" x alata AFHere’s one of the more recent crosses I did – Sarracenia leucophylla “Hanrahan” x alata AF. I’m excited about this one because… well… it’s an AF recessive S. areolata and can’t wait to use it in future AF projects. And… it’s fuzzy!

Drosophyllum lusitanicumNot a pitcher plant but… sheeyat, I’m loving how this Drosophyllum is doing.

Sarracenia leucophylla – Hurricane Creek White

The Sarracenia leucophyllas and their hybrids are putting on a show this time of year. Below are some frames of Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Hurricane Creek White’. I received these plants from fellow Sarracenia-broski, Mike Wang. These plants originated from seed collected by Dr. Barry Meyers Rice from the original S. leucophylla ‘Hurricane Creek White’ site before the site was destroyed. The destruction of the site is a sad tragedy, and sites like these along with other natural habitats disappearing happen all too often. I’m glad that at least we have genetic representations of these plants in cultivation. I’m thankful that there are growers out there making sure that these genetics survive. Shine on, leucos… shine on!

Back Home

Home sweet home! I recently returned from a family vacation up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It’s nice to be back, but I really do miss it up there. I got the chance to visit Karen Oudean and Jerry Addington and meet up with a couple other talented growers. (Kinjie and Phaedra – great to meet you! Brie – I’m sorry we missed you!) And yes, I’ll be featuring photos from that visit in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!

For now, here’s a few snapshots from within The Asylum. Great to be home.

I returned home packing my suitcase with a few plants from Jerry. (Thanks again, Jerry!) The plants have made the trip back safe and sound and have been potted up. Here’s a couple of the plants that made it back with me.

Parentage is uncertain, however Jerry suspects that S. ‘Doreen’s Colossus’ is involved somehow with Sarracenia “06-02” and Sarracenia “Jerry’s Goliath.”

Lecophylla Season

It’s that time of year again! Sarracenia leucophyllas putting up their fall pitchers. It’s the start of the season’s final show before the plants settle down for their winter dormancy…
