Naczi North: Sarracenia purpurea oddities

You may be scandalized to hear this, but the lovely Sarracenia purpurea leaves the Galleria staff, at times, "scratching their heads" (as the boorish public might say). In this room we relegate the oddities of the genus that inspire such unseemly behavior. The "veinless" forms of Canada, the unclassifiable intergrades of the Midatlantic coast. We leave these taxonomic conundrums for the cognoscenti.
