    ?? 4-season Container Bog

    In ground hardiness and hardiness in above grade containers are two entirely different things. I keep half barrels in zone 7A and can relate my experience. After a particularly cold winter (in 7A) my Dews were fine, as was my Sarracenia purpurea purpurea. Sarracenia leucophylla and rubra, along...
