    Whoa--how cool is that?

    Have no idea what the name is--bet Kev does though.

    Incredible they bloom like that. I never would have thought.

    Beautiful. Have no idea what it is without seeing the leaves.

    Check this out, maybe you'll see it.

    OK, you insect eating plant people out there that is one of the best websites I know of for all sorts of info and pictures and everything about these plants.

    IMO it's very poorly designed, very hard to find your way around, but bookmark it anyway. Great info on it. Explore. Well worth your time.

    Kev, thanks for the site.

    Wish they had cultural info--or at least, I can't find any. (Got lost and wound up in the bathroom )

    It is there - lots of it. Like I said, really bad layout.



    Try this.

    It looks like sarracenia alata or a hybrid.
    I used to grow Sarracenias in a small way years ago.
