Wow.. that has got to be the nicest in-ground bog I've ever seen!
Your P. grandiflora look AWESOME! Did you see my "plant of the month" entry this month?

That flower is perfect, except for the yellow streaks that make it even better in my opinion.
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.

Oh!...my god.

Everything about your bog is spectacular!

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, 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.

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.
