    Order of Emergence from Dormancy

    Does anybody know the order of emergence for Sarracenia species? I don't have S. alata but I do have a flava, rubras, leucophyllas, minors,... and it seems that the flava was the first, followed by the rubras. The leucos seem to be among the last.

    For me, here in southern Wisconsin, it starts with the purpurea ssp. purpureas and the oreophilas almost neck and neck, then the flava, minor and finally the leucophylla. I don't have ruba or psittacina, so I can't help there.

    From first to last.......for me at least.....

    Purpurea, flava, alata, rubra, leucophyllia, and S.minor.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Hmm leuco was definitely not the last for me, in fact it was one of the early ones. Psittacina, however, is always the last one to grow fully. It starts out early but takes a long time to mature.

    dana's delight, hybrid, purpurea, leucophylla --- psittacina.

    With my Sarracenia the order of emergence this season was as follows: purpurea, flava, S. x "Cobra's Nest," rubra, leucophylla.
    I should say something witty or remarkable but that would only prove my worth to society. To that I say meh!

    Is there any correlation with how far north or south they are native?

    I bet there is some correlation, since purpurea and flava occur in the northernmost of the range, they would need a shorter dormancy with the colder temperatures while alata, rubra, and leucophylla occur in the south where warmer winter temperatures might necessitate a longer dormancy. I'm no Sarracenia expert but that's what I understand based on the ranges of the different species.
