the one on the right that you cant see the pot at all is "Hummer's Hammerhead" the one behind it is SNW's "Sweet Excellence"
When I was a teenager, I had a huge pot of Sarracenia rubra ssp. rubra. They used to pop a ton of small flowers like this.
is a Sarracenia (psittacina x alabamensis) x alabamensis hybrid. That explains the gobs of flowers: alabamensis is a rubra subspecies or closely related, depending on whose taxonomy you follow.
I just got an HH last fall. It didn't produce any flowers this year, and the new pitchers are only a couple inches tall. I'm looking forward to it getting big enough to put on a spring display like yours.
