Sarracenia oreophila was, again, the first to "show" in 2010, but not every plant seemed to be on the same schedule (as the second photo illustrates). Each S. oreophila is site-specific in origin and both seem quite "hard-wired" when it came to the timing of their individual development.
The species is unique among Sarracenia, in that the production of pitcher leaves and blooming occur almost simultaneously; this is probably due to its relatively short active growing cycle, which -- in its natural range -- ends when it experiences drought-like by mid-Summer and the eventual loss of its pitchers. Last year, I attempted to postpone that and its production of phyllodia by partially submerging the pots by July -- and was able to put it off in one plant and preserve its pitchers well into September . . .
