I visited Mark Reinke and Gary Collier of Marble Branch Farms in Westminster, SC over the 4th. They breed and grow mostly orchids but have an in ground bog I thought I would share photos of. They are at the foot hills of the mountains and the nights cool off even though it may get into the 90s. The bog is lined and filled along the edges with granite sand. This is what the plants are planted in. The bog is spring fed and topped off from a near by mountain stream. I am shocked and amazed at how well the plants are doing in this situation. See for yourself.

In the last photo is Mark (with cowboy hat) and my friend David inspecting the bog. The small tree to their right is an Atlantic White Cedar that came up in a pot in my nursery. I can only assume that the seed was in the spag moss.
This bog is only a year old. They have had the plants in pots for 8 years waiting to get around to building the bog. Mark says the plants have doubled if not tripled in size since being planted in the bog.

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
