Sarracenia x exornata
Sarracenia (alata * purpurea)
Sarracenia x exornata has the potential to be an excellent and spectacular hybrid. It occurs naturally in southern Alabama and Mississippi where S.alata
meets the range of S.purpurea venosa.
The broad pitchers of S.purpurea and the characteristic "weak ankles" of S.alata hybrids result in a plant that splays out widely, requiring a lot of space
in collections, but the S.purpurea parentage ensures that there are plenty of pitchers that last well through the season.
In cultivation, hybrids with all of the taxa of S.purpurea have been produced. The better plants are generally the more compact selections.
