ID pitcher plants?

shadowshark27August 11, 2013

I recently bought two sarracenias from a grocery store (of all places) but unfortunately they didn't say what species they are. Can anyone help me out?

I think this one is a red cultivar of S. alata or something.

And I think this one is a variant of S. purpurea (or maybe it is purpurea, saw some others in the store just like it with more developed colors)

Thanks!

Hi I'm not sure of species but I was wondering which grocery chain? I found a picture plant at food city. But they only had one variety.
