The picture shows one of the few remaining large populations of Sarracenia leucophylla (all white dots are pitchers of this species, some yellow ones reveal the presence of S. alata) in W Alabama. In this habitat, which is exceptionally well managed, the plants are abundant. It is one of the most impressive Sarracenia bogs I have seen so far. S. alata and S. psittacina are likewise well represented, and all possible hybrids can be found within minutes. S. leucophylla, which used to be one of the more abundant species, is considered endangered in the meanwhile. The other, even more local species share this sad fate.
