    There are some very hardy Filiformis varieties, especially from the 3 Canadian sites (which are in extremely bad shape right now :-/ ) Those are definitely hardy, but there may be other hardy varieties out in cultivation.

    Trayi is from the Gulf Coast region. Florida Panhandle-ish. Pretty far south. You might get away with it if you mulch like jimscott suggested.

    Sounds like a great list so far, Pappy. Can't wait to see your progress!

    I would be worried about the roots freezing and dying in a pot (I'm assuming you're talking about an 'above ground' mini bog right?). In the ground they would have some protection from hard freezes, but in a pot I think they would croak- even species native to your area... In the UP it would be a solid block of ice by November
    I'm in southern MI, and I'm still winterizing my purpurea with my other sarrs and VFT's in a garage just above freezing.

    I'm new to this too though- am I wrong?

    I must say I'm interested to hear others feedback on this. A mini-bog I could leave out all year here would be SWEET.

    i have lots of intermedia, if you want i could send you a few, if they dont make it no great loss,
    mine are very invasive here(zone 7) just when you thought you lost them from last season, they show up in every pot near where they were last year, their some what small the first season so can be easily pulled out if you don't want the extras, but i like mine its almost like carpet in some of my pots.

    You are correct. Conventional wisdom holds that none of the plants listed (linearis ?), would live though a zone 5 winter, in an above ground pot, left exposed to the outside elements. I wonder though, what might happen with 200+ inches of snow? That is a lot of snow. Would this provide protection from the brutal winds of winter? Maybe, at least, for a few of the cold heartiest of the CPs ?

    Here is a good thread for bogs in similar (or worse) locations. Too bad a lot of the pictures aren't online anymore, but Dom had an outdoor bog going in Quebec. This post in particular is impressive when you think about having a bog under all that!
