Abstract

Presently there exists confusion concerning the legitimacy and taxonomy of the named natural hybrids of Sarracenia. One reason for this confusion centers on the unsettled taxonomy of what may be called the S. rubra and the S. purpurea complexes. More specifically, hybrids derived from either or both of these two complexes are those for which the taxonomy is most unclear. Additionally, in some cases, collection data is scant or missing. Drawn from literature, collection records and field observations, a review of the named natural hybrids of Sarracenia is presented.

Keywords: natural plant hybrids, Sarracenia, Sarracenia hybrids, Sarraceniaceae
