Can any UK growers shed any light on the identity of a fairly widely-
available Nep hybrid in my possession? My plant came (I think)
from Chris Crow of Sarracenia Nurseries and was sold to me as N.
x coccinea. However, looking in The Savage Garden, my plant (and
others I have seen dying in garden centres) look much more like N.
x morganiana ie. fat pitchers, green background with heavy red
speckling. My plant has never, under the range of environmental
conditions it has had to suffer, produced red pitchers with green
I appreciate that the plants have the same parentage - are they
also so variable that they can resemble each other?
Any info. would be much appreciated.
