    I ended up cutting it off last night. I wouldnt have been able to get any seeds out of it this late into the season.

    Why not? If you have the pollen from another flower earlier in the year, they can set seed over winter.

    I dont think so Alexis. Our winters are much too cold I think. I left a purp outside last year and it completely devastated it. The low last winter hit about -20F (-28C)with wind chill. I dont think the tissue from the flower would survive since the purp pitchers didnt.

    I also would prefer the plant to flower in unison with the others so that I could cross pollinate in the spring.
    If I had the chance to live in zone 7-8 I'm sure there could be a possibility that seed would set in winter, but since I place all Sarrs in fridge dormancy and I'm low on space, I couldnt accommodate a flower. I also did not have any pollen to use for cross pollination and did not want to mess with selfing the flower.
