    Are there any Pings that I can grow in an outdoor bog year round? I live in Georgia Zone 7. I have Pitcher plants, sundews, and venus fly traps in it now.
    Thanks

    Ya there are, I can't remember thair names right now, but I will go home and check my book. By year round, do you mean, pings that don't require dormancy, or pings that will tolerate a full spectrum of seasonal changes?

    Magore,

    Where bouts in GA? I'm in Atlanta (Duluth if you want to get technical.)

    I'm not positive but I think oyu can do primufolia. I know there are quite a few others but I can't remember them off the top of my head. I'll look in to this too and get back to you

    Hi Magore,
    You can try growing some warm-temperate pings outdoors in GA. Try P.caerulea, lutea or planifolia. They are not annuals like many of the other warm-temperate pings(i.e. lusitanica) P.Primuliflora and ionantha should work also although they can be grown as sub-tropicals/tropicals.

    I live in Hiram, which is between Marietta and Douglasville. By surriving outdoors, I mean that I plant it and the only thing else that I have to do is water every few weeks in the summer and remove the tree leaves in the spring. My bog is about 9 feet square and is about 24-30 inches deep. I have a layer of river sand that is about 12-16 inches topped with a mixture of 2 parts peat and 1 part river sand. I am working on getting spagahaum moss to grow over the open areas. Some open areas are already covered with normal woodland type moss.
