    What are some particularlly cold hardy Sarracenia?

    I live in zone 6b and it gets -10 atleast once every winter, and is routinely below freezing. What are some particularlly cold hardy Sarracenia that I would be able to grow outdoors all year (if any?)

    Thanks

    Well, there's the obligatory S. purpurea subsp. purpurea...

    The rest are all about the same as far as hardiness with the exceptions of minor, rosea, psitticina and some of the antho free varieties of other more southern species.

    Hmm okay. Do you guys think S. flava might be a good choice? According to this article (http://www.carnivorousplants.org/how...Sarracenia.php) it is listed among the Sarracenia that might be grown in zone 6. It is worth mentioning that I have an unheated shed I store my temperates in, I think that negates most of the below 0 temperatures. Cant be sure though.

    Sarracenia jonesii, S. oreophila, and S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. montana are tolerant of lower temperatures and longer freezes than the other species from the coastal plain, at least in my experience. They would be harder to acquire than most other species, however.

    It should also be noted that most Sarracenia can be grown in climates much colder than they would experience naturally if they receive the appropriate protection during the winter months.
