its hard to say just by looking at it. to me most purps look alike. were the seed or plant was collected helps greatly in the ID'ing. do you know what county/state it came from?? someone else here on the board may be able to help you more. var. montana is only found in transylvania county nc. rich
Here is my Sarracenia purpurea ssp venosa var Burkii:
This plant has been also been indentified as a species different from Sarracenia purpurea, and there are many differences that demonstrate it should not be part of the subspecies venosa at the very least: This photograph shows Sarracenia rosea.
Sarracenia purpurea venosa montana is an extremely rare plant, it can usually be found growing near with the equally rare S. oreophila and S. rubra jonesii.
Both photos at the top of the thread could show this rare plant, but the second is odd. However, the various populations of this taxon are far apart so some divergence should be expected.

These are some really bad companies, all shells of Plantron Inc., so don't order from them unless you want small and dead plants they don't want to refund:
Farmer Seed and Nursery
Four Seasons Nursery
House of Wesley
Richard Owen Nursery
How do garbage companies like these stay in business, ripping people off year
