I obviously will defer the prize to 2nd place if I win (unlikely anyway!) but I couldn't pass up participating with the S. (leucophylla x oreophila) flowers in my new (as of 2020) Sarracenia greenhouse!

Also, there's a S. leucophylla 'Tarnok' flower photo bombing in the lower front-right of the photo :D

Pinguicula primuliflora. Give some love to temperate butterworts.

Edit: Since opening, the flower has turned purple. Not dark purple, but definitely purple.

Drosera binata var multifida extrema

May not be the flashiest, but it's my first carnivorous flower! Super excited to see them happy and well.
