    There's a difference between surviving and thriving outdoors though. Sure an alata could survive, but it would be late waking up in spring and be inclined to grow poor pitchers.

    I'd recommend only growing sarracenia under glass in your location, with the exception of ssp. purpurea.

    Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea is your best bet. You can have other CPs in the bog, though. There are Drosera, many, that grow around here (I think rotundifolia is one of them?). As well as Pinguicula and a few Utricularia. Some Darlingtonia californica that are from the colder mountain areas could probably thrive in a bog garden (with cool moving water) if it had a good amount of mulch in the winter. There's a lot you can do.

    I have Sarracenia purpurea outside all year round. It does fine, the U.K has harsh freezes but its still doing realy well.
