    The northern states are in very good shape with their bogs and wetlands, unlike the Southeast.

    Why? The plants are native.

    It depends on which county he's in. There's a high probability that they are in his county, but there's a chance that they aren't. We've run into problems with this in the past and it's caused some big problems. I'm just trying to aid in a responsible decision.

    If we want to get technical, every person with an outdoor artificial bog living within a mile or so of a natural bog has a good chance polluting the natural gene pool. Bees can carry the pollen that far. So technically there could be oreophila crosses in the middle of Michigan already. Who knows. I see absolutely no problem introducing some purps to the bog. Of course I would do my best to introduce from a native, local population first though.

    It happened in Virginia. Take a look at my internship thread in General Discussions. It definitely has leucophylla in it.
