Pitcher Plants

Pitcher Plants (Sarracenia purpurea (Huntsman's cap))

These have remained in the pond throughout the winter with out any protection. I have however removed the weights from their floating raft, so they are damp but not sitting in the water, which froze solid a couple of weeks ago. S. Purpurea is the most hardy.

These are fascinating, but I have never had any success with them. It's nice to see you are able to grow them well.

Thank you, Hywel. I do put Sarracenia flava and S. popei in a tray under the carport for a bit of protection overwinter.

So pleased they survived those very low temps of a few weeks ago Siris. It's looking very healthy..

I do hope things get easier with your husband Siris. The pitcher plants are looking after themselves, a little help..
