    So, I was looking up Sarracenia hybrids when this caught my eye:
    http://plants.usda.gov/cgi_bin....l=SARRA
    It's a USDA report that seems to say there are wild stands of S. purpurea in California! Does anybody know about this? I presume they must be introduced, as I'm sure that the Savage Garden and other reputable sources of CP information would point out if there were a native colony so far flung from the regular distribution of the plant... Still, it could be some "Land of the Lost" type thing... You know...

    They are introduced sometime in the 60s I believe. Wait till Barry sees this thread he will know all about them

    There's a bog in California where it, and other CPs have been introduced. Check the link out http://www.illusionary.com/~dglidden...nia/bog-1.html S. purpurea is on Part two.

    A great example of the "conservation ethic" gone astray.

    Asian Carp.
    Purple loosestrife
    Zebra mussels.
    Sarracania in California.

    introducing non-native species is ALWAYS a terrible idea..
    even if its done on purpose.
    even if its plants we "like"..

    Agreed SC! Those pics made me kinda sick. I like zebras, but I sure don't want to see them roam Valley Forge Park here in PA with the deer

    Funny how there was the comment about someone using a trowel to get 'an instant D. aliciae collection'. I commend that person. Go back with your trowel and dig up every non-native plant.
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.
