i think it might be a sarracenia purpurea? but the pitchers are tall and waxy to the touch so could it be the northern subspecies? maybe???

No, there isn't, unless there's a way you can contact the seller directly. Genes are not always definitive and vary quite a bit so it's not really possible to consistently know what a sarr hybrid is just by looking at it.

Ive been trying to find the grower online but to no avail. The label seems to say “Bradford” so I assume thats the place it was grown :?

That looks a lot like the mini-pitcher plants I got last year at a grocery store where I live. Mine came from Rocket Farms in CA, but they had no idea of it's pedigree. It will get reddish-orange when it gets in the sun, but the hoods are thin and can get burned.

I have one that looks exactly like that and its probably a purp hybrid, possibly catesbai.

Here's a pic of what mine looks like in the summer time.
