    Absolute zero.

    Just kidding, with the wind factor: -35 C for 2-3 days each winter.

    Dom,

    Great cool bog.

    Have you considered non-CP bog plants into your backyard bog??

    Things like cranberry, bog clubmoss, bog violet or orange milkwort?

    Those might really add the perfect "authentic bog" appearance to your project.

    Something to consider..........

    Keep up the good work!

    That may be the only time I've heard of Darlingtonia dying from exposure to cold weather.

    By the way...those intermedia are great. They are so red. Where did you get them? I want some.

    I'll add cranberry to my new awesome peat bog (working on it, but it's a secret). Fresh cranberry are sooo good!

    For Drosera intermedia, it was a seeds exchange.

    June 5 2007: Last pics of my old peat bog, I'm moving it at my father's house. Seems like a few purpurea survived. Here's the list of what survived (unlike last year, I didn't protect my peat bog agains't cold with a plastic sheet and dead leaves). The result is...quite interesting. Looks like I'll have to protect it each winter.

    Dionaea muscipula: 2 alive (4-5 dead)
    Drosera filiformis: dead (Whyi!? My favorite drosera, noooooooo!)
    Drosera rotundifolia: alive
    Drosera Binata: dead
    Drosera intermedia: a few death, but still alive
    Utricularia livida: dead
    Utricularia intermedia: dead
    Pinguicula grandiflora: dead(gemmae rotted)
    Sarracenia Danas delight (wrong identification of leucophylla): Alive
    Sarracenia oreophylla: Alive, making a flower
    Sarracenia judith hindle: Alive
    Sarracenia pupurea: a few death, but will survive
    Sarracenia minor: Alive
    Sarracenia flava (2 clones): Alive

    Wow.. that's a lot of losses, but a successful experiment I'd say. At least you know that you'll have to protect it next winter. I wouldn't really expect the U. livida to survive since it's subtropical. Did it survive last year? That's pretty awesome if it did.

    I'm back?
