I live in San Diego about 5 miles from the coast. Winter temps are similar to yours, but the summer temps get a little warmer.
i have N. ventricosa, N. sanguinea "red", N. X judith finn and N. X ventrata growing outside year round. If you want a fast growing vining nep go with the ventrata. Mine is popping new pitchers all over the place. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
