A Pitcher Plant Correction!


Subject: Re: April New Plants

Hi. Just an fyi: Sarracinia Bug Bat (?) is best known as Sarracinia Minor.

Les,
It’s been brought into our collection as a Hybrid. It may have also been a common name for S. minor, but we are referring to:

“Sarracenia ‘Bug Bat’ is a pitcher plant that was hybridized.. by Larry Mellichamp at University of North Carolina at Charlotte Botanical Gardens… Sarracenia ‘Bug Bat’ is most likely a cross of Sarracenia (alata × psittacina) × minor var. okefenokeensis….

“The name Bug Bat was coined about 2005 by David Crump alluding to the shape of the pitchers resemblance to baseball bats, and then associated with catching bugs.”

Thanks
Peter
