I think I bought this as scarlet bell. The shape is correct but the coloring is different from any plant I have seen. Is it another named cultivar or simply a little variation on the norm. I have never seen this color before.
Love bug looks redder to me (I have a small one). Also, the plant in the pic doesn't appear to have purpurea in its lineage. It definitely has the parrot pitcher and? This plant has the exact same shaped pitchers and outward growth of scarlet bell but its almost golden.
It also doesn't have the flared hood or upright growth.

I have redbug and lovebug. I was just searching around and it looks like it might be "Doodlebug". How funny is that.
Do they feed well in the yard or are they poor at catching prey?
It's actually Dixie Lace. It is extremely vigorous and always looks good, highly recommend it.
