Golden-Red Jubilee is another lovely cross created by John Hummer, this time of Sarracenia rubra jonesii x rubra alabamensis.
Traps are tall and gracile, similar to S. rubra jonesii except they are regularly almost twice as tall, and twice as veiny. Like S. rubra alabamensis, their primary complexion is golden-yellow. Early pitchers are narrower and less upright than late-season traps, which is what it is named for.
The name comes from the fantastic color scheme it assumes in late summer and early fall. Emerging around early September are much larger pitchers with orange-red veins against a yellow-gold background. Leaves are borne on tight networks of fast-growing rhizomes, densely clustered on small growth points. The display is a uniform fountain of golden-red pitchers, combining the best attributes of its parents.
