    few pics of Sarra's

    while grillin' dinner tonight, i snapped a few photos of the first open pitchers of the season.


    oreophila x 'willisii'



    'Boob Tube' x open-pollinated



    'Boob Tube' x open-pollinated, sibling to previous one



    got this unknown off Ebay last fall, sure looks like an x excellens, but who knows?



    leucophylla - yellow flowered



    oreophila, with a flower that may never open. had a hard freeze on Mother's day, some flowers were killed off outright, some opened, but were malformed, many still opened normally, and there's some like this, that just seemed to stop growing. i'll give it another week or two, and then cut it off if it doesn't grow any more.



    oreophila x purpurea

    I was just curious if you have a picture of your whole set up. I am trying to get some ideas as mine are all in seperate containers however I am wanting to try and do something different. Anyways your plants are looking good.

    Thanks

    That oreophila x 'willisii' is very pretty. Does anyone still have willsii anymore? I am too new to know the whole history behind this cultivar, but was just wondering.

    Chad - I'll take a pic of my deck in a few weeks, once everything is open. Should look pretty good then. I have 7 or 8 6-gallon tubs, 2 that are probably 30 gallon, and 1 that's probably around 60 gallons (that's just a wild guess). They hold all my mature plants. I have around 6-7 trays that hold younger plants that are in individual pots. I don't know what I'm gonna do with this year's crop of seedlings, as I am pretty much out of room, and I have probably 100 seedlings.


    Devon B. - i'll definitely get a pic of that oreo x purp when it's fully open. It is a really nice plant. The oreo x willisii i have mixed feelings on. The pitchers are a bit floppy, all it takes is a hard rain and they are horizontal.


    Dashman - not sure if there is the true 'willisii' out there anymore. I think there are some out there, but they're not the original. I could be wrong though.

    very nice indeed , i havent had much luck with garden plantings, whats the secret of the media down deep in the mini community pots, mine always seems to start to smell rotten after one season , are you re potting the whole mass each year with new media , isnt that expensive?
