    Wow.
    I would, but I didn't think anyone knew the Dana's Delight parentage.

    Must be a nice cross, though!

    One cross i am planning on doing next year is [Purpurea x Flava] x [ Minor x Psittacina x Purpurea.) then ill hope for a cultivar.
    It would be likely called nuclear meltdown. So please don't duplicate this cross

    Wow, all those corsses sound like winners. I wish I had the chance to cross my Sarracenias this year, but never really got pollen. :/ Sarracenia, that is an amazing looking seedling, such a shame that it died.

    Well, the seedlings I'm getting are from a certain californian nursery and are 2 years old. I presume they'll need a rest this winter then?

    I'm just very scared of killing them. I lost about 85% of all the plants I had outside this year due to a lack of winterization. In fact, I can't really think of a single one that survived both the winter and ramping back up in Spring, outside of the alpine strawberry.

    Current plans are to get a foam cooler and put the pots in there, fill it with rubber or straw mulch, and then keep it as close to the building as possible...

    Try larger bogs if you're going to leave them outside. The larger the bog, the greater the thermal mass and the less likely it is that things will freeze solid. This should not be the only thing you do to winterize, but it's a start.

    I dont know how the ID winters are but you could go with a fridge dormancy if you have the room. It worked very well for me this past winter, I lost no plants and they came right out of dormancy without skipping a beat.

    This is fun! These sorts of things should be in those combo puzzle books!

    {[leucophylla x {[(purpurea x psittacina) x (purpurea x flava)] x purpurea] x (flava x leucophylla)} X {[(rubra x oreophila) x (purpurea x leucophylla)] x [(leucophylla x flava rugelii) x purpurea]}

    I think I got all the brackets correct.
