i can cheat. it is warmer here than most places:
No fair Mach! Those are wonderful, it'll be June/ July here before I see anything like that : /
indeed. I can cheat and then some. Even though it is cool it really isn't cold. cool enough that i moved some seedlings inside to warm them up and get them jump started. The first pic is a hybrid that has given me flowers 2X a year. Fall and spring. It doesn't really even loose all its pitchers. It does go dormant though, but hangs onto pitchers. Looks like flava X purpurea and maybe some of the purpurea heritage helps it hang onto pitchers to the bitter end. it does help though. Keeps on chugging along keeps on doing photosynthesis. Rhizomes keep on getting bigger. Very robust hybrid. The others are all pushing new leaves form feb-march. wonder if purpurea X oreo hybrid would hold leaves...... Long term people in Hawaii are impatient and don't like things that go dormant. Long term will be to make hybrids better suited to our climate and less likely to go dormant down to phyllodia.....
Chris, mine are about as far along as those in your first picture, except my flowers are all almost completely open; couple more days. I have some tall pitchers but none are open yet.
