Here's another new CP book that's just come out.... "Carnivorous Plants: Gardening with Extraordinary Botanicals" by Nigel Hewitt-Cooper out of the UK. It's a US book though published by Timber Press. So it's available locally.
Once known only to collectors, adolescent boys, and fans of the cult film The Little Shop of Horrors, carnivorous plants are poised to be the next big trend. Commonly sold alongside succulents and air plants, they provide striking architectural style and can be grown indoors and in gardens. Carnivorous Plants is an accessible, smartly designed guide to growing this unusual group of plants. It offers a general introduction to the world of carnivorous plants, and growing and cultivation information for commonly available and easily grown varieties. Hewitt- Cooper also provides advice on where to grow the plants; year-round care, cultivation, and maintenance; and a directory of the best carnivorous plants for home gardeners.
I can't recommend it more!!!! (especially since I have a few photos of my bog in it!!!)

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
