Description officielle (Vol. 44, Septembre 2015)

    I bought this cute hybrid in 2006 from a French carnivorous plant specialist called “Damien Chertier” who used to sell plants. The parents are unknown.

    This little Sarracenia, which rarely exceeds 35 cm in height, possesses red-veined yellowish pitchers at opening, which become all red very fast (Figs. 6 & 7), arranged in a rosette around the rhizome. The small flower with red-to-purple petals and sepals is borne on a peduncle 45 cm high (Fig. 7). The plant produces a lot of pitchers during the growth season but seems to divide very little, usually once a year during spring.

      Sarracenia ‘Amphibien’ may be the result of a very complex crossing between Sarracenia psittacina, S. purpurea, and S. alata, but it is still unclear as the shape of the pitchers is very different from other hybrids.

      The name “Amphibien” (amphibian in English) comes from the particular shape of the opening pitcher that reminds me a croaking frog. This plant should be reproduced only by vegetative means to ensure that its unique characteristics are maintained.

Description officielle (Vol. 44, Septembre 2015)

      I obtained this hybrid from a French carnivorous plant specialist called “Damien Chertier” who used to sell carnivorous plants. He didn’t remember the origin of the parents.

      Sarracenia ‘Elvis Presley’ is a green yellowish plant wearing delicate red veins on glabrous pitchers at the beginning of the growth season, which become finely pubescent at the end of it (Figs. 1 & 2). The pale yellow flower that blooms in spring is a little bit taller than the pitchers and is difficult to pollinate. Indeed, I have almost never got seeds from this hybrid, or only a few sterile ones. Just before winter, the plant produces some curved phyllodes toward the ground which could suggest Sarracenia oreophila heritage. It grows fast and multiplies easily.

      The specific name “Elvis Presley” comes from the particular shape of the lid with its wound spur, which reminds me the hairstyle of the famous rock ’n’ roll singer Elvis Presley.

      This hybrid may be the result of complex crossing between Sarracenia oreophila, S. flava, and S. alata. This plant should be reproduced only by vegetative means to ensure that its unique characteristics are maintained.

Description officielle (Vol. 44, Septembre 2015)

      I found this plant in Marcel Lecoulfe’s greenhouse in 2005 without a label. The seller told me it was a special variety of Sarracenia rubra, which is impossible given the shape and color of the pitchers and the flowers.

      The plant is 60 cm tall bearing initially orange pitchers which quickly turn red, copper, and purple (Figs. 1 & 2). The underside of the lid is pubescent. The flower is large, with bright yellow bracts and sepals (Fig 2) that tend to become copper as the season progresses. The first spring pitchers are usually aborted, very small and broadly winged, but they become better shaped during the summer. This plant doesn’t produce a lot of well-formed pitchers.

      I called this plant “Rubis Rare” (rare ruby) because of the completely red to purple color of the few pitchers at the end of the growth season.

      This hybrid is probably complex, but has certain characteristics of S. purpurea. Nevertheless, its yellow flower and red pitchers indicate a probable crossing with S. flava var. rubricorpora or var. atropurpurea or with S. alata var. nigropurpurea.

Description officielle (Vol. 44, Septembre 2015)

  I made this hybrid between Sarracenia ’Rubis Rare’ × (× mitchelliana) in 2008, but I didn’t take care of the seedlings until 2013. Indeed, one was larger than all the others, which increased my interest in this crossing. I transplanted it to a large pot and, the year after, it was showing all its characteristics.

      The size of the pitchers and the lids are amazingly huge and the plant produces a lot of traps that sometimes fall down under their own weight. At first, pitchers are heavily veined and well colored, but after some weeks they become entirely red (Figs. 1 & 2). The pure yellow flower appears during spring (Fig. 3) and might be smaller than the pitchers. Sarracenia ‘Dantadelle’ produces a lot of sweet nectar, grows fast from very early spring until very late summer.

      I have selected this particular clone because it was clearly bigger and different from the other seedlings of the same breeding. I gave it the name “Dantadelle” because of an old bet with friends during my bachelor’s degree; I promised them that I will give my first interesting hybrid this name. This cultivar should be reproduced only by vegetative means to ensure that its unique characteristics are maintained.
