    Here a few pics of my Sarracenia purpurea in a bog next to my 300 gal pond. we live 500 miles north of Vancouver BC, I've had it for 3 seasons and it survived -30c and the long winters we have, I cover it with a burlap sack in the winter.

    I can see some red on the lip of the pitcher facing us, at the back. But the flowers look like they were yellow

    Thats not S. purpurea spp. purpurea f. heterophylla, yhou can see some red venation in the pitcher hoods and necks. It does need a tad more sunlight though, not much, maybe a 2-3 hours increase.
