The depicted individuals of Sarracenia rubra wherryi belong to a selection of populations (along a roadside ditch and in fairly dense forest) near the type locality of this taxon in W Alabama. The plants display a considerable variability depending on their surroundings. Only few other cps are found nearby (even the otherwise more abundant S. leucophylla is uncommon here). The number of apparently intact localities is fairly high, and because the plants seem to survive in overgrown situations, they do not appear threatened. Some roadside localities are easy to spot, and overcollection may cause damage.
