    Yes, the plants listed in the above posts can live outdoors year-round in Georgia. I would recommend the caerulea, planifolia, ionantha and lutea as the best possible canidates for growing outdoors.

    Thanks for all of the input, now does anyone know where I can get some of these. I would like about 2-3 of each type to see which ones do the best.

    Better have a look at that river sand before you plant too much in it! River sand can often contain high mineral content dangerous to many species of carnivorous plants. A good test is a drop or 2 of hydrochloric acid: if there is a fizz then the material may be unsuitable for CP cultivation. Sand needs to be quartz (silica) based. Sand containing lime (as in limestone) is quicky leached out by the acidity of the peat, and is concentrated at the surface by capillary and evaporative action, right where it can do the most harm.

    Thanks for the heads up, I will check the sand. I am sure that it is ok since this will be the third year that I have had pitcher plants in it. I added more pitcher plants, sundews and venus-fly-traps last spring and they seam to be comming out of dormacy OK. The first year I mainly grew "normal" bog plants, three way sedge (sold as dwarf bamboo), water Iris and a few plants sold as marginals. Maybe that helped if the sand was not good to start with. The pitcher plants didn't realy take off until the second year.
