    Try P. primulaflora, P. planifolia, P. lutea, P. caerulia, P. ionantha, and P. pumila. They can grow outside year round. They like shade with some morning sun. P. planifolia prefers to be partially submerged. All others like to grow in standard CP mix with a dressing of live sphagnum. In south GA, most of these species are native. Growing Mexican Pings for most of the year outside should also work well. Just avoid hibernauculum forming species, they tend to melt in temps over 75f.
