    Is Appalachian Spring oreophila x jonesii or the reverse? I don't know much about Sarracenia hybrids, but the flower looks very jonesii-like to me.
    Thank you, I also think the yellow streaks make it better. I think Appalachian Spring is jonesii x oreophila, but don't quote me on that. S. Jonesii flowers are deep red in color and much smaller.

    I have the climate to make a winter-mulched bog a reality, but not the water supply. I'm so glad you took the time and effort to craft such a beautiful bog garden. Thank you for sharing.
    Thank you. Yeah, water is a big issue with a bog, especially a large one. I am fortunate to live where the water TDS level never goes much above 50 ppm and usually hovers in the 30s range so I can use the water from the hose, plus the fact it rains a lot here and the bog gets flushed with rain water. Without the quality of our tap water, I could not have the collection I do and certainly not the bog.
