Carnivorous Plants 2012

This year has been a real succes when it comes to the carnivorous plants in the garden. Despite a really cold winter with temperatures on serverel occations down to minus 24C and even colder for a few hours, all the plants survived outside. Now around 300 different carnivorous plants grow healthy in our danish Z6 garden. Here is a few examples - much more to come:

Sarracenia (purpurea venosa x catesbaei) x oreophila.
Sarracenia courti x purpurea.
Sarracenia x catesbaei in bronce.
Yellow Sarracenia x catesbaei from a locality with naturalised pitcherplants in Denmark.
Sarracenia leucophylla hybrid.
Another leucophylla hybrid. Leucophyllas are not hardy outside as our summers are too cold, but mixing them up with S. purpurea genes sure helps.
Here is another Sarracenia from the danish locality. Here the purpurea genes are obvious.
Of pure species Sarracenia purpurea purpurea forms, oreophila and flavas are the best. But mixing their genes with more tender species certainly improves the selections of what can be grown outside.
