Sighting Info

Observed: July 9, 2010 @ 2:00 PM
Posted on: August 19, 2010 @ 8:24 AM (diff: 41 days)
Yellow Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea forma heterophylla. A rare form of our usual Sarracenia. About a dozen plants of this, plus usual pitcher plants on shoreline of a headwaters pond of Avondale River.) Since species field is required to be filled in, and considering there is no field for Pitcher Plant, I have submitted this under "Wild Iris".

Thanks Mac. We will update to include Pitcher Plant as an option. In future if we don't have a species listed you can chose "Other" for group and "Unknown" for species and ID it in the comment box (as you have done here). We have set up the database to flag all "unknowns" and read in the species from the comment box to update the species listing. That way our list of options gets updated based on what people see!

Amazing! Do any other colourations exist?
