    Welcome back,

    I used to live in Michigan and did a lot of research on the plants that grow well there.

    D. aotundifolia, D. intermedia, D. anglica, P. vulgaris, S. purpurea are all native plants and grow well outside if properly mulched in winter. VFT's also do well and can be acclimated to growing outside year round, in fact there is supposedly a small "wild" population in the U.P. somewhere. Neps you are going to have to grow inside, that winter in Michigan is a degree or two too cold for them to grow outside.
