Carolina yellow jacket


It does look like a seedling but a seedling cannot be calle Dana's Delight. It would be a hybrid or self, but still not Dana's Delight. But it does not have the color nor the shape of Dana's Delight and at that size, it should look close to the real thing. It looks like a hybrid of Rubra maybe? Dana's Delight new pitchers come out as a white and green or pink leuco, then it gets red as it mature. The white would come out quite early. I have 3 months old seedlings that have a completely white top. The white come out early in seedlings. If at that size they don't show any white, it is a good guess that they won't be white at all.

Here is an emerging pitcher:
