Not every hybrid turns out pretty! The plant below is proof. A couple of years back I had this great idea. I thought I’d make the following antho-free cross (purpurea x psittacina) x (leucophylla x purpurea). In my head, I visualized this striking hybrid that looked kind of like a purpurea, but with a lot of white in the upper portion of the pitcher. I hoped that trait would come through from the the leuco and psitt influence. Instead, I got the plant below. Looks very much like a purpurea with a few white spots. I was hoping that the fall leaves might show some improvement over the spring leaves, but alas… its looked like this all season! Oh well, in the world of breeding you clearly win some and lose some… this one is a loss!
