Contributions free pdf Excerpt from Contributions Before Tournefort had named the genus Sarracenia (1) and Linnaeus (2) had accepted the name, the group of the Sarracenias was already known to the early settlers in North America. They collected the plants and sent them to Europe as interesting exotics, where they were carefully described in botanical publications. As early as 1570, Lobel described specimens of the group which had come to his attention. Clusius (1601) (3) figures S. purpurea and Parkinson (4) copies his figure and adds a note which seems to indicate that he knew S. flava as well. Concerning this plant, which he calls "The Hollow Leaved Strange Plant of Clusius," he writes: "This strange plant hath such strange leaves, as the like are seldome scene in any other that we know growing, for they are nine or ten or more, rising from the head of a small long roote, each by itself, being small below, and growing greater upward, with a belly as it were bunching forth, and a bowing backe, hollow at the upper end, with a peece thereon like a flappe, and like unto the flower of Aristolochia, or Birthwort, and round at the mouth like a half circle, full of great darke purplish veins on the inside- the whole leaf is of thick substance almost like unto leather- among these leaves sprang a stalker but was broken short off, so that what flower or seed it bore could not be observed. This was sent to Clusius from Paris by one that received it from Lishbone in the same manner. But of late Master John Tradescant the younger found this very plant in Virginia, having his toppe thereon, which he brought home and groweth with him, which I here show you with Clusius his figure. The leaves are longer, narrower and not bellying out, and the flower is borne at the top of the roundish seed vessell." The specimen sent by Tradescant was probably 5. flava. Plukenet (6) (7) was familiar with both S. flava and S. purpurea, since he gives very accurate figures of both species. John Ray (8) gave a Latin translation of Parkinson's description already quoted. The actual specimen described by him, however, was a natural hybrid between 5. flava and S. purpurea, and was the first natural hybrid collected. (See below.)
