    I doubt my oreos will this year. Probibly only my S. flava 'cooks bayou' and S. purpurea ssp. purpurea x. rubra will. Well maybe a couple S. minors will.

    If you've never seen Sarracenia flowers in person, you are in for a treat Steve! So far, my early bird (S. flava var. flava) is holding its reputation by being the first temperate CP to wake up for the year by sending up flower buds, last year the plant had 6...I'm hoping for more this year!

    yeah, there's nothing like the smell of a greenhouse with a bunch of S. flava opened up. Had a few open on Feb. 1, came back a week later and could barely stand it in there. i felt sorry for the undergrad student who waters them every week.
