Here are some pics from my last visit on 10/31/15, Snohomish, WA. I'll just add a few at a time. Karen was warning me the whole time that the plants aren't that much of a show right now because most of them were dormant, but there's still so much beauty! The woman in the picture is Karen, the owner. She is great! Descriptions above photo.

Pretty! In the front middle area, now from the angle Karen was at, taking a picture of what she was pointing to
I wish I had a CP nursery over here on the east coast I could visit. I was just talking to another CP grower at a craft fair Saturday who stated exactly what I thought-- How come I live two hours away from CPs in situ, and yet there are basically zero CP nurseries here in NC (or on the southeast coast at all).
Joel and Josh Lynch don't count, I think, they're small-scale. *sigh*

wrightorchid she IS retiring so she's selling what she has and when it's gone, it's gone! Thanks for checking them out! She refers to the plants as "kids" and they're well loved.
Jonathan Mejia I got an email back from her saying that it's too late to collect seeds this year and that she's sorry she doesn't have any for sale. Maybe if she hasn't sold out by this spring I can ask then... I'll keep you posted! Thanks for adding the link.
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
