Black Sarracenia have been in the cross hairs of breeders for a long time now, but few have succeeded in creating such a beast. Granted, there are a few Sarracenia out there that do turn black with an "artificial suntan" aka when greenhouse grown, but has anyone made a plant that turns black from head to toe without the need of a greenhouse? It's definitely not easy to make such a plant, the reason being that most of the black clones/genetics in cultivation are difficult to coax that color out of them. They really need the exact right conditions to darken up! Sure, they will get black
This summer was quite hot and sunny in Germany and the Sarracenia were really happy with this. On many plants I got the best colouration ever, especially with the different red tube varieties of S. flava. But lets start with a very beautiful S. x’Linda Butt’ S. flava var. rubricorpora ‘Burgundy’ MK F26 S. flava var. cuprea ‘runder Deckel’, a simple but very beautiful clone. S. flava var. atropurpurea, Marston Exotics, 1999, MK F174 S. flava var. ornata, Wewahitchka, MK F42 S. x moorei ‘Timothy King’, MK H225 That's all for now, but there are more pictures on my blog: michael
