    Well this last year as I was watching it from down here in Ga, the lowest I seen was -10 Fahrenheit. Of course you have to factor in the wind chill. I am struggling with what I am going to do with my circ bog if I cannot fit it in the garage over the winter. The ground freezes from what my GF told me and there is a good bit of snow. I may try some cheep plants in a bog one year and see how they do, but my leah's and other rare plants that were gifted to me I do not want to take a chance on. I'm just scared as I have never grown in the MN environment before. I already know you have to mulch the crap out of it, but I just don't want it to become a real big to do every year.

    Yeah, it might be a good idea to try some cheap ones first. I think that you would need to bury it in the ground and maybe that will help a little. I would be interested in knowing how it goes when you do try it though.

    Here are some updated pics of the bogs and a few individual plants. I will post a few more pics in two or three weeks as things change pretty rapidly! Hope you like'em.


    The Bogs

    Bogs



    S. Copper Vase - Romanowski Hybrid, I just LOVE this plant!



    S. Excellens (Leuco Red x Minor Okee Giant)



    I got this one as Flava Ornata but I think it has something else in it, but I don't care it's a stunner!



    Group of S. Leah Wilkerson



    S. Leah Wilkerson, heads and shoulders above the rest at about 32" tall

    That's quite the setup you have there!

    I like the S. Copper Vase as well. I was stunned by it when I first saw Mike King's photos of it.
