Here's the blue ribbon winning display at the North Carolina State Fair in 2019. Please note that these aren't my plants ... but it is my picture :-) Hope you like it!

EDIT: I completely missed the part about it being only species. Pic removed and I'll create another one. Sorry about that!

It's a lovely picture but this month is specifically Sarracenia species, not hybrids or crosses. While I se a couple of plants that look like they may be species, most of them are hybrids like the Scarlet Belle down front.

On another note, I would have loved to have seen that for myself!

A little late to the game, but I like this one.
S. alata. These pitchers are both from the same rhizome, but shows that variation can happen right next door.
