    Bogs looking good. If it were me, I would cover with a thin layer of pine needles and only cover with a tarp when you get cold freezing wind conditions and uncover when that is over. Freezing winds will harm if not kill the sarrs. If you do mulch, check the plants regularly to make sure no mold/fungus is growing under there.

    As for the sarr seedlings, I would keep them inside this winter and then plant them in the bog in spring. Even in my zone 8 conditions, I am putting this year's potted sarr seedlings into the greenhouse I am using as a cold frame for winter.

    As for dews, I think filiformis northern would survive in there, rotundifolia, intermedia, capillaris, and probably others I can't think of right now but others have already mentioned.

    I have lost flytraps before in winter due to rot in the old bog that did not drain well, so now I mound them slightly.

    ditto to what has already been said. i've got some little sarr seedlings coming to foco that i'm thinking about keeping in the greenhouse for this winter and then taking them back to michigan when i visit next summer. this is the first winter that my bogs won't be mulched at all so i'm expecting to lose both adrian slacks and leah wilkerson lol.
    So many plants...so little time

    I live in a zone 5b and have wanted to put an outdoor bog in for a while now. OUr average snowfall is around 5 to 8 feet so i would almost assume there would be plenty of insulation but idk if they would survive until then.. any help on this. sry mass didnt mean to take over your thread. thats an awesome looking bog. can wait to see it next year.

    I second the pine needles motion. Worked great for me last winter. As for tentative plants;
    -S. 'Snowflake"
    -S. flava
    -S. purpurea (obviously)
    -S. rubra
    -S. jonesii
    -S. oreophila
    -S. oreophila x leucophylla
    -S. x catesbaei
    -S. x moorei

    In a few years we should have a leucophylla x purpurea cross that's going to be absurdly chunky, vigorous, colorful, and cold hardy.

    No, Stylidium is Australian and won't survive.

    that sucks.
    I swear the people up north that I got it from had it in a tank of shallow water outdoors, year round.
