This year's unusually warm weather quickly got the attention of my Sarracenia.

Flava row is full form right now:

Check out the orange flowers in the last pic. Those are on flava 'Bronze' x 'Coppertop #16'. I've noticed that the more red in the pitchers, the more red that spills over into the flowers. All of my rubricorpora's have red highlights on the flower stalks, bracts, and sepals (zoom in on the 1st pic).

I am the only person in my family who willingly walks past the south side of my house right now. :lol:

The leuco's are starting up. My freebie from Mike Wang got a head start on the others:

The stripes on the umbrellas are pretty cool, one leading to each stigma. I'm curious to see if my other leuco flowers do this.
I have one leuco "albino". The flower has a lot of green in it, no mistaking it for a flava:

And the moorei's are lit up:

All those red flowers with a yellow highlights, and then there's Mister Oddball in the front row: yellow with red highlights. It's a flava var. ornata x leucophylla 'Hot Pink'. And in the bottom-left corner, a few of my early rosea's in bloom.

Very nice. Mine are barely starting to bud. I think a greenhouse is definitely in order here in the PNW. Along with some lights. We need light and lots of it.
Do you cross or self pollinate any or is it OP for all?
