They survived!

timhensley_gwMay 31, 2014

Last year was my first year to try Sarracenias. I made a little bog garden using a rubber feed bowl from the Tractor Supply Store. Anyway my flava and purpurea both survived their first winter in my garden. They just sat there for the longest time and seemed to be healthy but they weren't putting up new pitchers. Today I went out to take a look and flava has pitchers over a foot tall. Purpurea's are several inches tall. Now I want to go and buy more of them and expand my bog garden.
