    Greetings,

    I was wondering if someone has 1 good sized plant of S. purpurea ssp. purpurea (the farther north it's origin, the better).

    Here's the scoop: I ordered S. pupurea ssp. purpurea from a CP nursery in the spring. They sent me the plant bareroot, with all pitchers chopped off. Well, when the plant began to grow, I found out it was actually S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. montana. It's a large beautiful plant, but not cold hardy here in Montana!

    I want the real deal: S. purpurea ssp. purpurea. Cold hardy, tough as nails, leave it outside all winter.

    PM me if you can help.

    Thank you,
    Brian

    Schloaty- var. montana (lower case M) refers to the elevation it is found growing, not the state. They can be found in NC, SC and GA.

    If it grows in the mountains, then it should be pretty cold hardy. I mean, if that one isn't, then the regular venosa wont be, and your best bet would be ssp. purpurea.

    Lol,

    The mountains of the east are foothills compared to the mountains where I live. It can get -50F in the winter here. Only subspecies purpurea would survive.
