This vigorously growing introduction from NC's Larry Mellichamp and Rob Gardner is one of their new series of interspecific hybrids involving S. wherryi, purpurea, and rubra. The upright pitchers appear a dusty orange with dramatic red veining toward the top of the pitcher and the outside of the cobra-like hood.
