Interesting comparison of flowers. This is S. 'Orange Fire' followed by a plant grown from seed of a cross made by Cedric. It's S. 'Orange Fire' x S. flava var. ornata. Neither are particularly distinctive flowers but the addition of flava doesn't seem to add much to the colouring of the original. Maybe just a slight yellowing.

I was wrong about the S. 'Orange Fire' x S. flava var. ornata flower not being different. A week later and it's coloured up a bit. I've not got any other flower that shows this effect to this extent. Nice contrast.

Someone mentioned getting darlingtonia to flower outdoors - what's the problem :thumright: (sorry, not a great photo).

A few photos from today showing the first autumn pitchers on the leucos.

These 3 are S. leucophylla seedlings I've been growing for a few years now. I'll need to report them separately in the Spring.

Here's the drosophyllum I planted this summer. Still doing well and has caught quite a few bugs but I don't know if it'll be large enough to survive the winter.

Only 2 of my other S. leucophylla have produced significant autumn pitchers so far.

The first is MK L12A, purple & white, Deer Park, AL.

The next is the ever reliable 'Helmut's Delight'. Always pitchers early and strongly even in our damp and dank climate.
