    CP sight-seeing is a wonderful thing... :biggrin:

    I'm going to the Green Swamp near Wilmington, NC this April looking for Venus Flytraps. You can expect a report from me on this in a few months. I'll also be visiting some botanical gardens in Chapel Hill that supposedly have a wonderful Sarracenia display.

    Flint, regarding your comment about naturalizing Darlingtonia--I'm not so sure about that. I've read reports of VFTs and Sarrs naturalized in various, unnatural locations, but that's because they are highly endangered and non-invasive, i.e. they don't become weeds in a new setting.
    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq4200.html
    Darlings are not in any immediate danger, so people haven't tried to 'move' them.
    See the first paragraph here:
    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq5160.html
    And I don't know if Darlings could be naturalized successfully without a lot of 'help', as they can be picky about their environment.
    If you know any mountains in Washington with plenty of alpine, peaty, sunny, happy spots...

    Actually they do great on this side of the mountains. I know someone here who has been growing CPs since 1970 here and he totally 100% knows without a doubt that they grow great here outside. I say it like that cause he keeps telling me to put mine outside and I keep tellin him that if I did that Id miss them. It is getting kinda crowded in here though maybe this summer.
    DE all the mountains here are alpine, peaty, sunny, happy spots [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] they are the same mountains just a little further north, they would love it here! #### if they had legs and arms I'd be willing to bet they'd pack their bags and move here themselves [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Heh...so you should consider trying them outside in a bog garden. I might be able to grow them outside but only if I heavily mulched them in winter.

    But if you think they'd love it where you live that is brings up the invasive species issue. Just planting them in some bog where you live could cause them to run amok (i.e. explode in population through stolons, etc.). They might be awesome carnivorous jewels, but invading another plant's habitat isn't a good thing. But of course you wouldn't go and do that, so why am I saying this?!

    So go ahead and try 'em outside, it'll free you up more room inside, to be filled in instantly with more plants! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    wow DE, would a good idea. I'm gonna do it ASAP! I'm a little sick of all these ugly natural wet lands all over town anyways. They need to be conqured in the name of CP's!!!! LOL. I'm kidding everyone. Really. Well, sorta, I think I might try planting some Cobra Lillies in a few bogs close to my house. I really doubt they will take over. They will just exist.

    If you don't think they'd turn invasive, I don't really see why not. If there is little to nothing else growing there, and you're sure it's not illegal. I have no idea about the legality part. Of course, use your own plants and don't field collect.

    Actually, I think it's probably legal as it's just like me planting a bulb not native to MA outside. Except I own my yard. The place you want to put darlings may be owned by someone else, in which case you'd need permision, and land owners would be VERY suspicious about you trying to put an alien-looking plant on their property.

    I don't know. You're there. I'm not. Your choice entirely.
