Spring is here :D

Hi everyone, after about a week of *finally* warm weather here in Texas, I bring you my first flower stalks of the season :D.

Nice to have you back, Idontkno23! The plants look great. For the photos, just adjust the "white balance" to get rid of the artificial blue color cast. Looking good! I hope you hang around and post more, especially now that the new growing season is about to start in the northern hemisphere. Yippee, winter is almost over (as far as the plants are concerned). :)

I'd like to say it's the cameras color problem, but it's actually grey and dreary outside. :\. My phone doesn't have many camera options in the first place :p

Edit: Oh okay! I found the cloudy option on my phone xD, sadly it reduced the image quality a bit :|. Tried to replicate the image angles

That looks great! The colors are realistic now, and the photos are really nice (especially for a phone camera--they're getting better all the time. Shoot, phones can do almost anything now: camera, mp3 player, probably streaming, live webcam or video phone calls). Don't laugh, I'm way behind on cell phone technology: haven't bought one yet, am a real luddite about it so far.

Very nice plants!

Is the sarracenia a rubra?

S. 'White Sparkler', very similar to a S. Leucophylla

So is it a S. Leucophylla "White Sparkler", or what is the cross, species, etc?

"Sarracenia ‘Fireworks’ was one of the hybrids I created by crossing a female S. rubra subsp. jonesii x purpurea with pollen from a heavily red-pigmented form of S. leucophylla.

...

Plants of this cultivar are sold under the trade-mark Sarracenia ‘White Sparkler’™ "

I think white sparkler and firework are both gorgeous.
Although I think all leuciphylla's are stunning.
