One of the very few localities of Sarracenia rubra wherryi in E Mississippi. Note the dull red flowers (only sepals visible) on tall scapes and the narrow pitcher lids. The population consists of only few individuals in a massive stand of S. alata, but introgression appears to be limited (S. alata is variable, though, and some influence of S. rubra wherryi may account for this here). The site on private land is very well managed by the owner. Although nothing was planted in the fairly small area, no less than eight species of cps plus a good number of other rare bog plants do occur here spontaneously.
