I am considering attempting to naturalize a population of VFTs in my front yard here in the swamp in NE Florida. I already have pings and sundews growing in that part of the yard and I have several sarrs growing elsewhere as well. There are also bladderworts in the swamp at the back of my acreage. All of the currently present plants are natives.
I feel with my prime habitat, I won't be hurting anything by introducing the VFTs as the land can more than support it.
What I would like pointers on is the following; what cultivar would:
• Be vigorous
• Be hardy
• Stay low growing (to survive the regular mowing like the pings and sundews do)
• Preferably be red in order to be easy to find
• Breed and spread on it's own; I do NOT want sterile cultivars
Thanks for the heads up! VFTs would really round out the carnivorous species here IMO. I'd like to make this happen next spring.
