  1. Sorry. I dont have a picture of such a plant. Im currently working on an article about sarracenia cultivation to a danish magazine. Would any of you grow a hybrid including all known Sarracenia species and have a picture of that plant I can use?

    Pitcherplants wild in Denmark

    Not sure if I have shown any of these pictures but here are some from a naturalized population of Sarracenias in Central Jutland, Denmark. As can be seen a lot of hybridization appears here.

    Pitcherplants wild in Denmark

    No, the other plants I posted were seed sown plants from wild populations in North America. I dont know how many years these have been in Denmark. The first part of the photos were from 2010. The next part pics taken in 2015. Picture 1 to 3 shows pure Spp from the danish population.

    SPP from Annapolis Co. Nova Scotia

    Both red and af clones from this site. Obviously cold hardy.

    Sarracenia... montana

    Just sharing a few clones of Sarracenia purpurea Montana from Transylvania Co. NC. These are stunning and truly cold hardy plants. Note the winter color differences between two clones standing next to each other.

    BLACK Sarracenia

    Very nice plant Mike. Personally I would like a black purpurea shaped plant. Preferably fully cold hardy here :) that must be my goal within the next ten years :)

    Mid winter sarracenia.

    Mid winter and all looking good. However, March is the toughest most here in Denmark.
  9. For the past ten years many of my plants have been growing outside unprotected all year along. Lowest temperature has been around - 20C. Our biggest problem is not the cold but more the long cool spring and unreliable summer weather. Take a look at some of the plants. You wont see many plants with windows as they are not particular useful outside, but the genus Sarracenia has a lot of other colors and shapes to offer!

    Sarracenia - outdoor cultivation in Denmark.

    Climate changes over time :)

    Sarracenia - outdoor cultivation in Denmark.

    Its certainly a problem for some of the Sarracenia species. Flava (including Florida material), oreophila and the purpurea complex are the most hardy and obviously their hybrids including some, but not all hybrids with more tender species are the best. Anything with windows (leuco, psitta, minor) are just not hardy here in their pure form. And I define hardy not only to lowest temperature a healthy plant can survive, but including the summer temperatures, the temps in spring and fall and the result in form of strong growth. Im still aiming for producing real good garden plants that also non-CP fans will enjoy in their peat garden. The next generations are bone hardy and adapted to whatever weather we get.

    Can Drosera stand frost in a greenhouse like Sarracenia

    Rotundifolia, intermedia, anglica, linearis, filiformis filiformis can. And their hybrids. To some extent also arcturi and some others but you dont tell us how much frost.
