Sarracenia rosea Naczi, F.W. Case, & R.B. Case. Rose Pitcherplant. Phen: Mar-Apr. Hab: Wet pine savannas and seepage bogs. Dist: Sw. GA and Panhandle FL west to s. MS and (?) e. LA.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Other Comments: Schnell (1993) distinguished the RAB, distinctive East Gulf Coastal Plain population (with short peduncles, white stigmas, and pale pink petals) as S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii Schnell; Naczi et al. (1999) elevated this to species rank, as S. rosea. See Naczi et al. (1999) and Schnell (1993) for more detailed information and color photographs. Naczi et al.'s (1999) treatment of this taxon at specific rank is supported by the greater genetic distance found by Godt and Hamrick (1999) and morphologic and genetic analyses (Ellison et al. 2004). See MacRoberts & MacRoberts (2004) for a detailed discussion about old LA collections of S. purpurea or S. rosea.
