Interesting info that you've seen both parents' colors in the flower. 'Specially interested in any instances of separate 'streaks' of color. I can't quite make that out in your moorei pics. Gorge plants though!!!

Interesting and intimidating - I haven't heard of sarracenia flower color break virus, BUT, I am not well-schooled in possible sarr viruses. This particular plant is in a common bog with several other sarrs. I'll keep an eye out for this characteristic developing in any of the other plants' blooms.
I also found this picture of S. Pretty 'n Pink (which is what my plant is) - I can just make out a green streak on the red petal in this picture from a UK plant!
