Thanks DirtyDivisions! I'm surprised how nice these plants are looking myself considering the severity of this past winter. Some of my plants succumbed to the brutal cold while others were reduced to tiny growth points after some emergency dividing. A few of the healthier looking plants had some rhizome rot which needed to be removed. I guess the long periods of sub-freezing temps does a number on outdoor plants, even with a decent amount of snow cover. Another thing that surprised me is that almost none of my plants flowered this year. However though, I shouldn't be too worried. I have enough seedlings growing out to keep me busy during the colder months.

I just received three beauties from philcula today and as always they far surpassed my expectations. So healthy and colorful! A couple moorei clones of S. (leucophylla "Mesa Exoctics"x flava ornata) S. "Betterthanclone 1":
One of the many beautiful clones Phil gave birth to from his 'Judith Hindle' x 'Leah Wilkerson' cross:
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
