Another Red Green Comparison

A few posts ago, I put up some photos of one of my all-time favorite hybrids, leucophylla x psittacina from Alabama.  Beside it, I posted its anthocyanin free counter part.  Below are some photo photos of S. X courtii (psittacina x purpurea).  I’ve had this plant for a very long time, since the early 90’s.  Up until a couple of years ago, I had no idea what the “red” version of the plant looks like.

In the wild, purpurea x psittacina is a very rare hybrid, given the fact that purpurea is one of the first of the genus to flower and psittacina is the last.  The only natural hybrid that is more rare is flava x psittacina (posted back in July).  Below is a photo of the “red” version and the “green” version of this plant.  I don’t remember where I got the “red” courtii from now… but I remember I was told that it was a natural hybrid from Florida.

      well there is no problem tolerating it… But they are really slowing down and lookin pretty worn now. I may see anew more pitchers from the Alatas and leucophyllas but that’s about it for the season
