I keep them in the garage over winter, typically thanksgiving to late March/early April, depending on the kind of spring we are having. This year, we had a very early spring. I think it was the 2nd week in March, where it was about 80F every day for a week, so I moved everything outside then, even saw a few flower buds start to pop. Of course, things cooled off after that, I kept them outside anyway. April was actually colder than March, if you look at avg. temp for the month. We had some freezing nights up to late April, but that didn't seem to harm anything. I think only a few flower buds got nipped off, most survived the freezes. I have a catesbaei that is always the first to flower every year, this year it was about 17 days ahead of last year. Can't remember the exact date this year, but mid-May. Usually, this is the peak flower time for me, but this year, everything is about done.

Here is a set of pics, taken at the same time as those I posted this morning. These are all 'Boob Tube' x open-pollinated. I tried to take the same kind of shot for each, for comparison's sake. Some are my own seeds, some are from Wes Buckner. I can't remember which are which anymore (i tend to be very unorganized :-) - although the batch from Wes tends to lean more toward a psittacina shape, whereas mine tend to have a flatter hood and more open mouth.
Thanks Eric! Indeed, this seed batch is filled with wonderful plants. There's one clone that I'll photograph soon-the color looks "mixed" but it's really interesting. Others carried on the Adrian Slack "hood" and red mouth, and they look like mini Adrian Slacks with a different shape. They are incredibly variable, and while some may look similar, none are the same.
Yup! Both parents are complex hybrids, and no two siblings are exactly the same. It's really nice to see the incredible diversity of looks that this cross produced. It was also interesting to see how not all of the plants have white tops.

"Blood In The Snow", parentage unknown
sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

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
