Fall hasn’t yet come to an end here. November was cold: 5 degrees below average. But, for the first time in ages, we’ve got actual fall colors instead of a palette of rusts. It began around thanksgiving. And it’s still not quite done — looking out my window right now, my big pomegranate is yellow, crepe myrtles, red oaks, hackberries, and elms still have leaves too.
I’ve trimmed back many of the gross pitchers on my sarrs, but they’re still holding a lot:
Despite two light freezes, my seedling flytraps and their accompanying D. spatulata weeds look just fine:
The chill has made the colors pop on some plants:
This weekend has been spectacular: clear, sunny, and in the 70s! December is a great month, weather wise.
Doo Almighty$, thas pretty Ded.org! Mine is still somewhatgreen.gov. And check out how black them alata blax are to the left, the traps are totally blemished but you can overall see they's blacker than black, yall:

Trying something different this year on the outdoor bog. Usually I don't protect these outdoor Sarracenia, but I added quite a few this year and saw I had plenty of material from grasses so I thought, why not. The hope is then to burn the grasses in March/April, whenever there is a good dry spell.
In the greenhouse, clean up is commencing.
Fantastic performer in its first year (EDIT: first year in my possession, after purchasing this spring from Calen ;-))
Some leucos still hanging out
Not the most flattering shot, but figs hanging out with the sarrs

Few quick shots of mine today. Just hit summer down in the antipodes (otherwise known as "the land down under" or Australia). Plants are looking Ok, but I re-potted a lot of them this year so they haven't quite as crazy as I would have liked! Still fairly new to growing them as well so learning as I go :-)
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!

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
