Drosera filiformis ssp. filiformis, D. x obovata, D. x anglica, Pinguicula vulgaris, P. grandiflora, P. macroceras, P. longifolia, P. villosa, Also there are some Utricularia like U. purpurea and U. subulata(depending on where its from).

    I am a cross between 6 & 7, but am closest to six(right on the border of 7). I have S. 'Dixie Lace' S. x Catsbei S. Purpurea ssp. Venosa, and a VFT out right now. I had a S. Oreophila but it got washed away by a heavy rain. It was happy up until then.

    Wesley, have you been taking lessons from Jimscott??


    Wish I could leave my plants out during the winter. I'm zone 5 and winters get just a tad too cold to leave plants out.

    I know know... that darned stream he's always putting stuff next to. LOL

    I was a VERY small plant and just didn't get the chance to establish. If I had know it had been washed out I'da saved it before it dried up. I was sad to say the least.

    One of the experts on this topic would be mabudon. From him I've learned to push the limits of what can be grown outside. We both live in Canada, in 5a. He has grown many varietes of Sarracenia as well as the more hardy drosera (intermedia, filliformis). He may have done VFT's and I'm certain there is more. I'll wait for him to find this topic or you can send him a PM.

    That doesn't surprise me. I think people need to push the limits with these plants a lot more. They are more resiliant that people might think. Once they're in the ground and established, they're almost unkillable.
