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 – 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…

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!
