April is the flowering season for many pitcher plant species.  In many southeastern habitats where many species grow together, hybridization often results.  In the early spring when many pitcher plants flower, I found these colorful blossoms.  There were no traces of pitcher leaves in the ground to offer any hint of its parental origin.
