  1. While S. rosea var. luteola and S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla are well known amongst collectors, S. purpurea ssp. venosa 'Antho-free' is almost unheard of. Very few people in the world have this plant. Interestingly enough, this is a man-made plant, and my understanding is there has never been an AF S. purpurea venosa discovered in the wild to this day. Another peculiar aspect of these all green venosas is that they sometimes have folded hoods just like montanas. Under optimal conditions, the plant turns bright yellow, and sometimes the traps get bleached out from the sun and have almost a slight white tinge to them. There has been some speculation as to whether these are montanas, but I don't have enough info to support or deny such a hypothesis. What I do know for sure is that these plants are down right amazing!!! S. purpurea ssp. venosa Antho-free, photos taken 8/4/13:
  2. When you look at S. purpurea in virginia, New Jersey, etc., it seems like a lot of them are "mixed" between S. purpurea ssp. purpurea and S. purpurea ssp. venosa. While I'm not positive of the subspecies of these caroline Co, VA plants, they certainly do resemble S. purpurea ssp. purpurea. Interesting thing about these plants is that they're starting to produce some really big traps! Many of my other purps. (aside from Roseas) are pretty shy and don't get gigantic outdoors under my conditions in California, but these seem to thrive in our climate. S. purpurea (ssp. purpurea?) Caroline Co, VA, photos taken 5/12/13: Here's a different clone: And it's hard to tell from the picture, but these traps are fairly large: Overview of the population: One last shot:
  3. Aside from S. purpurea venosa 'Brunswick Red', This is my favorite clone in the collection from Brunswick Co, NC. It has this extremely bulbous feature to it, and the colors are also really nice. Perhaps bulbous clones like this one once gave botanists the impression that S. rosea was the same subspecies. Nice thing about purps. is the pitchers last throughout the winter, and are usually in perfect condition until about March, when the new pitchers start to emerge. They can also accumulate more anthocyanins and become more colorful, even during dormancy. here are the pics of S. purpurea ssp. venosa Brunswick Co, NC clone B-this plant is completely dormant:
