Freak of Nature

Sarracenia flava is usually the first of the Sarracenia species to bloom in the Spring.  Sarracenia psittacina on the other hand, is usually the last… but for some reason, whether its the stars aligning or hell going through some glaciation, their blooms may overlap long enough to produce a hybrid. This was obviously the case for the plant shown here. Found in Bay Co. by a fellow Sarraceniaphile, it is the rarest of the natural hybrids… a natural flava x psittacina hybrid.
