Sarracenia oreophila x ‘Adrian Slack’

Here are a few various Sarracenia oreophila x ‘Adrian Slack’ siblings from a cross I did back in 2009. I am so loving the variations among these babies!

Sarracenia ‘Leah Wilkerson’ x ‘Adrian Slack’ – 2011 Cross

I recently came across a pot of S. ‘Leah Wilkerson’ x ‘Adrian Slack’ seedlings while rummaging through seemingly endless pots of seedlings to repot – and this one seedling really caught my eye. The cross was done by Brooks Garcia in 2011 and I started to germinate the seeds in 2012. The seedling below is 2 years old and time will tell what it will be like a few years from now.

It’s the same parentage as the plant that I’m calling S. “Legacy” - however the S. “Legacy” cross was done by Brooks a little earlier (in 2008.) This other batch of S. ‘Leah Wilkerson’ x ‘Adrian Slack’ has some promising seedlings, but this one that I separated out looks to hold some nice potential. It’s throat marking marking and pale top remind me of S. “Legacy”, only this plant has a nice contrasting deep red/black border around the lid, nectar roll, and down the central midrib. It’s one plant I’ll be keeping my eye on. As always, great work, Brooks!
