Hybrid Sarracenia identification

Recommended Posts

Recently picked up a couple of unlabelled Sarracenia from Wyevale garden centre and was wondering if anyone is a dab-hand at identifying species :huh:

I believe the first is S. leucophylla, and that the second is some hybrid of S. purpurea?

I'm afraid the best you can label them is "Sarracenia hybrid (unknown)"

There are a few very common garden centre hybrids that come from dutch nurseries, and it is most likely one of those, however it is fundamentally wrong to label something just because it looks slightly similar to something else.

The first one looks a bit light starved so ID is a bit tough.

The second is a common unknown purpurea hybrid that everywhere sells.
