A Shadow over North Carolina

Return to the Trip Overview

Yeah, that really is a nice pitcher. The red blushed pitcher lip reminds me of the Sarracenia flava × leucophylla hybrid called Sarracenia 'Adrian Slack.' The pitcher lip spout is also surprisingly cleft--usually this is more a sign of Sarracenia flava than of Sarracenia oreophila. Huh. Still, not to fret--it isn't too cleft. Just remember that this feature is not completely and 100% reliable.
