    I am starting a collection of pitchers and am also installing a planing in an already exisiting bog in coastal Maine - USDA Zone 5B. Can anyone tell me which sarracenias would be hardy in our area?

    Thanks!

    S. flava will never make it there for the cold. Special handling would be in order. Mulching the bog and all that.

    Here in Connecticut I grow a S x 'Dixie Lace' on my balcony year round... We had drops below zero and it survived quite nicely.
