Sarracenia 'Stevensii' (Sarracenia 'Stevensii')

Closeup of a pitcher....isn't it a dear little thing?!

I'm hoping it's hardy enough to overwinter in the greenhouse.

I have some of these planted in a container that holds water and they live outdoors all winter. I used to keep moving them until I saw them on gardeners world and the guy keeps them outside all year.

They are doing fine by the way, lots of new shoots coming up and when the old ones start to go brown and die off you can see just how many insects have crawled inside.

They are great.

That's a nice close-up Sarah. Don't know this plant at all. Not sure what I feel about carnivorous plants.

Thanks T&T - I know some are hardier than others, but if yours survived this winter then it must be pretty hardy!

There are pitcher plants that grow in the wild here in Canada in zone 4 or 5... They are more horizontal in growth habit...and they survive winters of minus 30-40 deg F. will you grow these in your pond this summer Sid?Did you catch the pics of darlingtonia californica on Muddywellies pages? a very interesting colourful plant... the blooms of these guys are very interesting and unique too!

I think my pond might be too tiny for it Lori ;-) but it's a good idea - I had considered it..... off to look at the darlingtonia now......

It should be fine in the greenhouse Sid.
All of mine are in there over winter,no heating or protection and the roots freeze solid some nights,but they come back year after year.
