divisions experimentally planted directly in the ground in Alabama(cultivated, private property). These were planted last winter (2013-2014) and are thriving! Almost looks like they're in the wild, and this gives us hope that someday, we'll be able to reintroduce plants back into their native range with the help of conservationists, botanists, and the government. Disclaimer: reintroductions require a lot of scientific consideration, so unless you're a professional, please don't start planting Sarracenia back in the wild:
Any update on how this experiment is going? You have any new photos showing what the site looks now?
Not as beautiful as last year, but they look pretty decent now. These plants looked sooooo horrible about a week ago: lots of dead pitchers, weeds so dense you could barely see the traps, and overall hardcore neglect. With a little TLC, they look pretty nice again!

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
