Sarracenia flava, yellow pitcher plant is probably the most well known species of Sarracenia. It has a number of recognized color forms which can be striking. Even more so because many of these different forms can be found growing right next to each other, yet remaining distinct. This is the veinless form often called "maxima". This form is no larger than any of the other forms, it is simply the original name that was recognized, and so has taxonomic priority. Sarracenia flava "ornata" Sarracenia flava "rubricorpora" This one is between "rubricorpora" & "atropurpurea" S. flava "atropurpurea" "atropurpurea" between "rugelii" A nice savannah of "rugelii" with a large group of Drosera tracyi in the foreground. Growing with S. leucophylla, white-top pitcher plant. "rugelii" growing with Drosera tracyi showing the presence of a fire earlier in the season. Showing the truest yellow that you are likely to see in this species S. flava "flava" S. flava "cuprea"
