    Hey Curtis,

    Another Atlantan. Woo-Hoo!!!

    Most Sarrs will keep a fair amount of foliage through the winter so the pitchers should remain on though the older ones will probably brown to about half way down.

    You will want to cut down on moisture during the winter and keep the soil only damp. You might want to consider mulching but the winters here seem mild enough so I wouldn't say it is a must do thing.

    Growth tends to resume in March-April

    Hope all this helps

    Pyro

    Curtis,

    The VFTs will do fine under the same treatment [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
