    Companion plants for CP's

    These are all plants that I believe are capable of growing in bog like conditions.

    If any of you would like to test this list, please go ahead.

    Let's add to, refine, and make this professional looking.

    I'll have to add pictures of each species, and alphabetize things later.

    lofty ostrich fern
    Cinnamon Fern
    Hosta Vareties
    Calapogon orchids
    Platathera intergrilabia
    Cranbery
    Bog blueberry
    Lingonberry
    Cloudberry
    Iris ensata
    Lobelia Cardinalis
    P. japonica
    Primula denticulata
    P. Vialii

    Larix laricina (tamarack larch)
    Polytrichum ssp. mosses
    Pogonia ophioglossoides - rose Pogonia orchid

    I've seen Larix laricina (tamarack larch) growing everywhere in Sphagnum bogs... You can also add Polytrichum ssp. mosses, those are fairly common as well.

    Don't forget Pogonia ophioglossoides - rose Pogonia orchid...

    Imperata cylindrica (Japanese bloodgrass) will grow in a bog...rather invasively I might add.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Also, Heather, Cotton-grass, Windberries, Bilberries, Bracken, Marsh Marigold. These all grow in our moorland-bog areas. Possibly things like Azaleas too- I know they need ericacious compost, so probably.

    Most tropical ferns, bromeliads, and orchids grow quite well with highland or lowland Nepenthes species. Carex and other reeds are great Aldrovanda and aquatic Utricularia companions, as well as water lilies and other pond plants.
