Sarracenia 'Reptilian Rose'
Official Cultivar Description:
https://legacy.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/Species/v38n1p12_22.html#Reptilian

This is a wonderful hybrid that was created by Sarracenia master, Phil Faulisi. The parentage is S. oreophila "Sand Mountain" x S. 'Royal Ruby'. It produces some gnarly pitchers with a crenulated warped peristome. The plant was named by Mitchell Davis, who noticed the pattern of the veins appeared like lizard skin. The plant also emits a fragrance like that of a rose. As pitchers mature, they take on a lovely pinkish-rose coloration.  S. 'Reptilian Rose' is one of my favorites in the collection!

Photos are for reference only showing what pitchers would look like on a mature established plant.
